Is this still possible? The answer is somewhat important to me, because I have become so disenchanted with all the ridiculous issues this new store has generated, my hatred of DS4’s interface forcing me to stay with DS3A, and loathing of Genesis, that it’s come down to the fact that if I can’t even sort my wishlist, it’s time to say goodbye to the PC club and stop giving DAZ money for everything I can’t do..
Don’t know about the Wishlist feature but for the DS4 interface - have you downloaded the free DS4 Pro? It comes with the Darkside style similar to the Nouveaux Dark style in DS3. It has smaller buttons and text and gets rid of the default Fisher Price interface. I didn’t like the default style either.
I’m aware of the Darkside skin, It’s not just that- it’s the fact that they keep populating their desktop with more and more crap that takes up more and more space, which makes the scene window smaller and smaller. It’s like their content and layout is more important than what I’m trying to do with it. I render everything 1600x900, and a scene that big in that workspace is ludicrous.
I’ve been developing a long time, and the fundamental rule- make it work easily for the end user - is not really a consideration of new developers; it seems that all they care to do is show how cool they can make something: functionality is an afterthought.
Thanks for the assist, though, ‘Maus, and good to hear from ya..
I appreciate that, but I use a bigger workspace. I’d never get it the way it is in DS3A, which is why I’ll never move to DS4A.
You realise it’s your monitor size and resolution that gives you the size you have. You could still do that in DS4, you can change Font size Colors ect now. Only the Icons in Parameters and Shaping would through things off.
Don’t see how- when I tried DS4, all those tabs cascaded horizontally like in the post 2 up. It’s not just my monitor size, because when I had a 17” widescreen, I still had a majority of workspace, not those ridiculous tabs and icons. I have only 2 rows of small icons, not 4 of large size ones: my workspace takes up one colume as opposed to the 3 in that post.. It’s simply not worth the effort to try to make it work- I can’t be bothered, and it’s obvious DAZ can be either.
Look, it’s a waste of your time to try to convince me. I’m not a little 14 year-old who is new to this- I’m probably older than most of you, I’ve been developing code since the late ‘80’s, and I want my Studio to be efficient, not cool. If you tell me I can get that same size workspace in DS4, put up a screen shot, don’t tell me to work with what they shove at me- I don’t have to and I won’t. I"m not losing, DAZ is losing- money. I’m not the only one who feels this way. I’d conservatively estimate 30% of Studio users refuse to upgrade for the same reason I won’t and as such, we’re still rendering inn application that works comfortable for us.
Besides, the question for this thread had to do with sorting the wishlist by price, and I guess the lack of response means no, so I guess it’s time to stop being a PC member. Another loss of income for DAZ due to lack of planning…
I use 4 large icons across and list view for the Content Library because I prefer that. One column across and tree view (and I think smaller icons) are all options. There are some tabs that can’t be shrunk very much, however.
Okay, I have to admit, that’s not too bad. I might actually take a look at it again. Thanks for that, but it’s not going to change my mind about Genesis, the lack of new items for older meshes, the ridiculous new store, and the poor operational abilities of the new site in general. In fact, I was talking to DAZ support yesterday- I casually mentioned that I haven’t gotten a PC voucher this month and the very helpful young lady mentioned that there are no more vouchers, that we get coupons via e-mail now. Well, that ain’t never gonna work- DAZ has one of the crappiest e-mail systems in the world: the majority of the time I get the sale e-mails days after the sale has already ended; I get confirmation e-mails of purchases anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 days later. And it’s not my system- I use Yahoo Mail, and the fact that I get the DAZ mails eventually means that there’s no issue at this end, it’s at theirs.
I’m still waiting on a resolution to a documented problem in Studio 3A. I’m still waiting, because I registered that bug, documented it and gave them all the information well over a year before 3A was discontinued, and they never even looked at it. You can only ignore a customer for so long: regardless of how much in-demand your product is, treat people like crap and they’re gonna walk away. That’s the point I’ve gotten to.
I just wanted to add that my workspace I posted above is not that small because DS did that but because I set it to be like that. My renders are most always portrait and not landscape that’s why I don’t need a wide viewport. My DS3 workspace did look the same. And I have a 22” monitor
Tabs oriented on top instead at the side can be set under Edit - Preferences - Interface - Tab Groups. I like it better at the side because this way I have access to all the tabs without having to scroll for them when they are oriented on top.
