|0003069||Ham Radio Deluxe||Bug||public||2019-01-17 10:54||2019-02-24 15:12|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||188.8.131.52|
|Summary||0003069: Kiss mode setting should be removed|
|Description||The applications feature a global "kiss mode" setting. Beyond the awkward name, it's an undocumented and thinly implemented feature that enables or disables certain UI features.|
Looks like it controls:
Visibility of some sound card configuration features in DM780
Visibility of some columns in the DXCluster window
disables "Check DXCC update" feature in the DXCluster
disables "excel bar" and "awards verify" feature in the Awards frame
disables some features in the "Country view" in the logbook
Maybe there are more things controlled. Maybe there are fewer, as some of these settings might be invisible, overridden, etc ... I did not do an exhaustive evaluation.
I strongly advocate for the removal of this feature. The simplifications aren't worth the trouble and the cobinitorial testing they require. Only some modes are implemented, and no information is given to the user (at all!) about what features might be enabled or disabled in the product depending on the different settings. Really, the feature is a liability, and an indication of terrible UI design and UX management.
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Start up the logbook|
2) Use the "HRD Global Settings" command in the "Tools" menu
3) In the resulting "Global settings for YourCallSign" dialog, mark the "Mode" icon in list of icons on the left-hand side
BUG#1) There's a range of five settinsg from "(Basic) KISS" to "Advanced" with no specific description of what they do. The user is given a grand promise that the setting "makes operation of the HRD suite much less complicated".
If there are complications in the operation of the suite, these issues should be addressed individually and directly, not optionally hidden.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
This checkin removes KISS mode:
BRAVO! Finally we're rid of this.
