Why did you remove thumbnails of target element from events panel?

It was useful in v5 to see little thumbnails and names of elements related to tha action. Now I even don't see what the action points to. It's less productive.

After playing around I found a way to change layout to horizontal, and I can see the target in tooltip, but still it's less productive in comparison to simple list of all actions with target elements and with thumbnails.


It would be better if you change this panel to be vertical, with indentions for conditions, a little bit like a code.


The target elements of action should be shown on this list, not only with little picture but also with name.


On click


If [condition]


Resize Panel_1


Show Button_1


Else if [condition]


Hide Button_1


Else


Show Button_2

Hi Maciej,


This was removed for usability, design and performance reasons.


When you select one of the actions the target should be highlighted in the canvas. That should help a little bit.

Hey, thanks for answer.


That's kind of a weird decision, because having thumbnails and names is more productive that not having them.


I understand thumbnail performance reasons, but at least show the target names!


The new UI looks better with fancy icons, but you should have asked real users what they want. :) We, proffesionals, need productivity not fancy look.


Other guys from my UX team also complain on this new events view, that you can't see important things without lots of clicking.

Hi Maciej,


Thank your for your feedback, I'll upload this to our backlog so it can be reviewed by the UX team.
