new Cura theme fixes

Recommended Posts

Posted · new Cura theme fixes

I had some critique on the graphic design of the new Cura interface (https://ultimaker.com/en/community/view/16409-thoughts-about-the-new-cura?page=18#reply-112518), and decided to do something about it. Here's a work in progress:

Current state of Cura on the left, my changes on the right.

On my WXGA screen, I can get a better overview of the print settings. I have also removed some angled corners (section headers, scrollbar). Finally I removed the Cura watermark, because I find it a bit obnoxious.

Overview of the changes: https://github.com/fieldOfView/Cura/pull/1/files

I'm going to discuss this with the Cura team. Thanks for putting in the effort.

Thanks for considering my changes. I didn't create a PR against the Ultimaker remote (yet) on purpose because I would like to see some discussion first.

That looks great, and a much better overview of the settings, a lot less scrolling.

it's something I really liked from the "old" Cura :)

And most screens have a lot of screen room on the side, maybe making it an option to have two rows of settings ?

Allright, had a meeting with the rest of the team. We are going to make readability changes for the next version. We're looking at several different options and we've included your suggestions to the options.

This is one of the most promising options, but we won't make any promises about it until we've tested it.

One of the "interesting" things to figure out with a multicolumn layout is how it handles collapsing sections, and dynamically adding/removing options as they are enabled/disabled in the Machine Settings.

This is why open source is great!

I like the changes on the readability! Was already chatting with UM in the IRC about some stuff there :)

I could imagine the double rows to be on the left and right of the screen. F.e. on the left: machines / profiles / file browsing ... and on the right the detailed settings.. have a look at the photoshop lightroom gui for the idea...
