Description

I have tested Darktable's Transform toolset and found out that I'm unable to set the precize correction angle even if I already know it. For example I know I need a correction of 0,3 degrees. If I could click on Current Angle Numerical with the left mouse button and set the proper angle, this would make my work much easier.

Without an English GUI I can only guess what module that might be – it looks like crop&rotate. If all you need is a numerical input for sliders try right clicking them and typing your number.

Thanks for expaining. Unfortuantely this feature is not obvious. Intuitively I was clicking on angle's numerical which always resulted in setting the angle to 142 degrees.

  • System changed from Windows to all
  • Subject changed from Please add text boxes to correct the angle numerically to Please document bauhaus widget
  • Category set to Usermanual
  • Affected Version changed from 2.4.0 to git master branch

Hm, and it seems it is not even documented, assuming https://www.darktable.org/usermanual/en/ix01.html is correct.

Documentation is awesome, however who reads that? If a user has an experience with the Lightroom or any other similar app, should he or she read anything to start using another app of the same type? If you want to improve the ergonomics please consider adding interactive numerical boxes for available sliders. Left click on them should result availability to change the numerical within and arrows should allow immediate correction. Thats how you will make your app more intuitive and generally better.

If someone doesn't read it, then that's his problem, the problem.

Yeah, nope, thanks. What we have currently is better than what i have seen elsewhere.
dt is designed to be used by knowledged user, who did read docs.
Designing anything for lowest common denominator (read: ignorant users who couldn't be bothered to try to search for the solution for their problem first, before dumping to someone else, not that this is the case here), while may lower the entry point in the learning curve, will result in repercussions elsewhere.

Then index should link to that from "bauhaus" word.

Oh wait, you recycled the ticket for something else. Reopening.
