Revert category selection window

Postby ptoye » Sat Jan 16, 2016 7:19 am

In the latest version, in the New Event | Category field, it's not easy to see which category you've selected - the colour changes but this isn't easily noticeable, especially if you type a letter to move down the list. ISTR that an older version highlighted the selected category with a dotted line - much easier to work out what's happening. I challenge you to tell me which category has been selected on this screenshot.

Hi Peter, the selected category will have a checkmark. In your screenshot, no category has been selected because the Category field is blank and none of the categories in the drop-down list have checkmarks.

That's not my point. I agree that if I hit the spacebar a category will be marked. But I don't know which one! So I hit the spacebar, find out it's not what I was expecting, and hit it again, move the cursor to the correct category using the arrow keys or the mouse and hit it again. Totally unnecessary - the old system showed me which category was selected immediately.

Hi Peter, thanks for clarifying. I'll fix this in the next release.
