I wanted to put a search text right above the treeview next to the "Get More Add-ons" but it wont fit.

I couldn't find anywhere on the main window that would work best for the search. I do want the search on the main window, by the treeview. Just no room! :tongue:

Any ideas you think a search option would fit?

I can see what you mean.  Hmmmm!  What about to the right of "Tweak Has Been Ran On This System (n)", if you shorten this to "Tweak Has Been Ran On System (n)"?  Might sort of have some symmetry with "Get More Add-ons"?

If I do

"Tweak Has Been Ran (1)" I have enough space for the search link.

But the goal of that text is so normal users understand what it means.

So look at these 2 as if it is the first time. Which makes more sense to you?

"Tweak Has Been Ran On System (1)"
or
"Tweak Has Been Ran (1)"

Indeed...take your point entirely.  So what about "(n) Tweaks have been run"?  Does putting that way around keep it in the context you want it to be in?

Well the point of the text is to show the blue box next to it to let them know that is the color of the times in the list that have been ran on the system.

Then i just have the number there so they can see how many has been ran on the system.

I am adding the search now. I will see how much space it gives me.

Right now have the text as "Search Add-ons"

Thinking of just having it "Search" but if it is just "Search" someone might think it means to search the tweaks that have been ran lol

Let me see what I can come up with and I will post an updated exe.

Changing "Search Add-ons" to "Search Tweaks" as well.

Yup, that looks good and really allows access to the search feature.

Moot point as to whether it might not be better to swap position of "Get More Add-ons" with "Search Tweaks"...but that is really cosmetic.

Other than that I think that you've got nailed.  :smiley:

Good day, so much progress here! :)

That looks really good now! New users can't miss it now! ;)

Also great job on fixing the bug not closing properly on my end, it's definitely fixed now. It doesn't occur anymore at all and not at the start up menu even with the "Check for program updates.." checked.

hmm I just noticed the Favorites menu. Wondered some time how do I add own favorites to it but then I noticed that I have to right click the selected tweak. Could this be changed that all tweaks can be right clicked not just the currently selected?

And maybe add a text "right click tweak to add to the favorites", maybe to the edit window where the "drag items to manually sort" is now?

Edit: and the edit list seems bit too messy because it has a full path for every tweak.

Has to be selected so the program knows which tweak. The mouse over doesnt report what item it is over.

Sure can :-)

Yeah I will see what I can do about that.
