Make Edit Match window and others height-adjustable

Post by DesertCookie »

The 'Edit Match' window and other similar windows are of a fixed height that leaves a lot of screen real estate unused. The attached screenshot is in a roughly 1080p window; less than third of the window height is used effectively; on my 2160p screen that's less than 1/6th. This results in annoying scrolling in series with a lot of episodes (in this case about 1400).

I propose making these windows larger or user-adjustable.

:idea: This particular dialog is unfortunately technically not an actual window. It's just an overlay on the existing window. That's why it doesn't have a window frame, window buttons, window resize handles, etc.


:?: Looking at the screenshot with 400+ specials, I question if a larger window would actually help? A little bit perhaps, but it's gonna be an awful lot of scrolling and skimming either way, having 8 items on screen or 40 items on screen won't make much of a difference. When you click Edit Match do you know what (e.g. episode number, episode title, etc) you're searching for at that point in time already? If so, then manual scrolling isn't ideal.


:arrow: In this case, you'll want to just type-ahead "jug" to navigate to the first match, and then press the RIGHT arrow key to navigate to the second match, which is the match you want:

Code: Select all

CTRL+M

u
g
RIGHT
ENTER

FileBot r10340 introduces the net.filebot.glass.effect=false advanced setting to replace the in-window popup with a OS dialog that can be resized.

That's awesome! When will this change be expected in the regular releases?
