Settings : List of Apps to choose from

Post by zoomer » Tue Nov 24, 2020 12:06 pm

Opposed to Windows, in macOS we can choose Settings of any App
from a dropdown, not just the active App,
which is great !
I prefer that as you can switch to compare Settings with other Apps.
Somehow I prefer the whole driver settings UI/UX in macOS vs Windows.

But why do I always need to scroll through an endless List of Apps from which 90%
aren't even installed on my machine.
Would be nice if 3DConnexion could check availability of installed Apps and
otherwise hide the Apps Presettings, at least until they get installed.
Or offer an option to selectively hide them from displaying manually.

There was once somewhere options in Driver installer to deactivate some App's
Presets, maybe just on Windows, at least I haven't seen that option again.
But I would not want to re-check or re-set that manually with each new driver
Update though.
Better a Hide-Settings text/xml File on the machine, that I could copy between
my machines.

Hi zoomer,

nice idea. :) I have sent your suggestion to our Product Management to consider. The internal tracking number is MAC-260.
