C3 UX Feedback

Post » Fri May 12, 2017 4:53 am

i also find the android keyboard an immense flow breaker, it pushes the whole window, takes halve of the height, and is slow..

i think a customised keyboard could bring a much better tablet experience...

if found this rather cool project:

https://mottie.github.io/Keyboard/

you can have different key-layouts, numpad only , custom themes, its much faster, compact ...

There are many keyboards available to download for android, this would most likely best be served by the user picking and using their own preferred keyboard. If Scirra decides to program one in, what will work for one user may not be liked by another.

The back button problem renders mobile editing absolutely unusable, at least for me. There is no way I'm getting anywhere without eventually accidentally hitting the back button and instantly losing all unsaved progress.
Mistakes were made.

I've been using C3 for a few days and I'm consistently impressed with how rich and full-featured it is. Scirra is hitting it out of the park IMO and it's a super solid base for the inevitable stable release.

That said, my complaints are mostly cosmetic (it looks... quite ugly, haha.) My other three nitpicks so far:

1. The tab bar wraps and it looks hideous... TBH I'd suggest Menu/Save/etc. and Username/Avatar on one line, and the tabs on the next, and then have all the other panels below them. Horizontal space for tabs is at a premium and if the properties and project panels, for instance, have to scroll an extra 30px or whatever I'd prefer that.

2. There's inconstancies with dialogs, where OK/Cancel are reversed in some cases.

3. Sometimes the fade/show animation on menus, like the user one, feel really slow. Make 'em 0.1ms.

So...how exactly do we modify the themes/colors of the editor now? I rather have my dark one back...

@Cryptwalker themes are a work in progress keep an eye on the blog for more news!

@Andrex Thanks for the feedback! If you dislike the delay on the animations then you can disable them in the settings menu for the time being.
