Request: Stop bluring when editing filenames

Post by itstheburns327 »

Can you remove the "feature" that blurs the program when editing files? When I double click on a file under the "New Names" column to edit match or edit name, the background window blurs when the diaglog box pops up. It does not do this when editing the format. This is blurring unnecessary and very annoying.

:?: Can you post screenshots that illustrate the problem?


:?: What specifically do you find annoying about it? Does anybody else feel the same?


:idea: The Format Dialog is a proper self-contained window. The "Edit Name" editor is a in-window popup and therefore does not have window decorations, frame and minimize / maximize / close buttons. We use a "lightweight" in-window popup because it's faster to show / hide. A top-level "heavyweight" window may have an open / close animation depending on the operating system. We could certainly disable the blur effect, but this might make it hard for users to discern that the previous UI is in the background and disabled while the popup is open and waiting for input.

FileBot r10340 introduces the net.filebot.glass.effect=false advanced setting to replace the in-window popup with blur effect with a modal OS dialog.
