New Feature Preview: "Ribbon"
Hi there. So no-one likes to scroll horizontally, myself included. So why does Mockups force you to scroll that way through 60+ UI controls in the UI Library?
Well, the main reason is because I couldn't come up with anything better. Then a customer pointed me to a better way, which helps a lot without taking too much space.
So here's a preview of the new "ribbon-like" feature of Mockups:
The thing to notice as I select control groups is how much bigger the scrollbar thumb gets (i.e. how much less scrolling will be necessary to see all elements in the group). Sometimes the scrollbar even disappears entirely!
I never use the UI Library myself (I'm a Quick Add fanatic), so I decided to not publish this change live until I got the go ahead of those of you who do.
So please test-drive the new UI here, let me know if you like it, and if so I'll push it live.
