Posted · Do not "wrap around" in menus - it would make controlling a lot easier

When you navigate the menus with the wheel, it is quite inefficient, that the you "wrap around" when getting to the top or bottom of menu. E.g. the "return" item is always at the bottom, so when you want to get back you have to "hit" it exactly to go up. It would be much easier if you could just dial to the bottom without having to "hit" the return exactly. Also in the main menu. There are three items. Now you can "miss" the top or bottom items by scrolling too far. If the cursor did not wrap around it would be much easier to hit the top or bottom item and to hid the middle item a single step would always work. So please. Let the cursor stop at the top or bottom of the lists in the menu

    I'm actually quite happy that it wraps as you can then quickly exit a bunch of nested menus by directly going to the bottom... this counts even if there are 3 times since then I don't have to think about it too much, but if the button is giving you trouble then I suggest replacing the knob https://www.youmagine.com/designs/lofted-um2-knob, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2172449 or https://makerware.thingiverse.com/thing:832197

     

    I suppose we could make it a setting but in a lot of cases where buttons are shown itself a flag is already being set to allow wrapping the screen or not since after reading a bunch of text you don't want to skip back to the beginning of the text...

    I think the button works fine, but then you could have back places at the top of the menu lists instead of at the bottom, which would make much more sense and then no wrap around

    Also when selecting items in lower horizontal menus, wrap around is totally not useful only making it harder to use

    I don't think those should be wrap around, I'll check.
