I’ve been using DS for years and been resisting changing to 4.X. Tonight I bit the bullet…and may spit it out. The UI seems worse than the old one. Much. But I know some of my griping is from unfamiliarity. I have 2 specific questions:
1) How do I hide empty categories in the content library? In 3.X, you could right-click in the library and that came up as an option in a dialog. Do I have to go scan each and every category for content and then manually delete it? Is there an option I can’t find? Is there a config file I can open with a text editor to get rid of some of that superfluous trash? Seriously, I do not need a category for Left-Handed Science Fiction Characters with Fur.
2) Is there any way to reduce the size of the sliders in the panes, e.g. the Parameters pane? The default ones seem like they are either the kindergarten-sized jumbo ones or the large-print versions—I can’t figure out which demographic they were designed for. They take up about 4 times the screen real estate that the old ones did. I would like to shrink them.
