Need to get rid of the scrolling iconbar though, it's so slow. And the click on iconbar moves it to the back thing in ROS4 is horrible. Whole iconbar could do with a replacement, but it's tricky to fool apps into thinking it hasn't changed. I tend to scale the iconbar icons by 50% Xways: [link] notice the harddrives, floppy are also thinner, and the TBAFS text below the TBAFS icon's been removed (thanks to it being a toolbox app, toolbox programs are much more user configurable). Long icon text is bad, takes up too much space, and anyone who just puts their appname below it will be shot.
Making all the icons in Configure in ROS4 into jigsaw pieces was stupid, less visable differences for icons that are only avilable in 1 app, the configure app, it's rather obvious that they're for configuring stuff.
Regarding zooming, what about modifier+scrollwheel zooms in/out, centred on the current mouse position? No need for ever more scrollwheels. Maybe we should just support 2 mice one to move/scroll, one to pan/zoom.
Acorns had scrollmice before everyone else anyway, just they were twist joysticks, bitstick anyone?
