Comments and discussion on the new color legend
@utkarsh.ayachit @cory-quammen @kmorel Instead of blasting everyone with e-mail, I thought we could have a discussion here. I am looking at the new color legend, and have two topics of discussion. I am using master, can.exo, painting by displacement magnitude and Z. One way to quickly look at the numbers is to flip to File/ Settings/ Reset and clamp every timestep.
My first blush is that the color bar is too thin. It is somewhat hard to read. In the new color legend editor, we can change the width. It is currently 10. I would like the default changed to somewhere between 15 and 20. (I think I prefer 16). Thoughts?
I had to look carefully at the dashes to the left of the numbers, to make sure they weren't negative values. I worry this is confusing. I just had a ParaView non user take a look at can/ displacement magnitude, and she guessed they were all negative. Unfortunately, I don't have any great ideas... One possible idea would be to move the numbers further to the right. Another would be to lengthen the dash, and have it cover some of the color bar. Thoughts?
- Clicking the color legend does not change its Window Location to "Any Location"
- The "grab area" is incorrectly placed for the case of Ticks left/bottom.
- Change default width of the color bar to 16
- Change dash from current to what Cory presents below - i.e., make the dashes longer, and touching the color bar.
