So, working on a new project, and I noticed some things that should be easy to implement and make developers’ work easier.
One thing is: there is no obvious way to manage resources. By “resources” I mean the stuff Lectora called by that name–images, video clips, etc. I duplicated my old project to start the new one, because there’s a bit of overlap. However, even after I delete the scenes that aren’t part of this one, all the associated images and video and hotspots and everything are still part of it, making it “heavy” and cluttering lists with lots of items that aren’t even part of this project. (See image.) In Lectora I could open the Resource Manager and delete the unused items.
Speaking of that dropdown … why does it include the same item multiple times? Notice that repeated skinny rectangle? It appears another 5 times if you scroll the list. Clutter, again.
And speaking of finding things in that list: why is it in no particular order? If it were alphabetical I could find the item I want (place.svg) instantly, instead of having to scroll around through that list until I happen to spot it. If it had normal interface conventions, I could just press “p” to jump to it, in fact.
