๐Ÿ™ Feedbacks needed ๐Ÿ™ --- Quick-Switch: recent dock and subdock

(Justin Rosales) #23

Hi @Georges,

I followed the steps you provided in โ€œHow can I get a fresh start on my Station.โ€ When I opened Station, it did delete all of my applications and asked me to re-sign in. After going through the process of signing in, picking new apps, as soon as it loaded all of the apps, the Quick Start notification came back and Iโ€™m back to the same locked screen, unable to do anything. Any other ideas? Thanks!

How can I remove this feature from my left nav ASAP?

I for one, like the feature a lot! I am a shortcut user so I hardly even noticed that the icons shifted. I use the cmd+1-9 keys all day, and when switching back and fourth between apps works well for me if itโ€™s one of the apps I use regularly enough to know its number. ctrl+tab works much better for that. Great improvement.

I can understand how people would not like the location of the icon, and it certainly doesnโ€™t need to be there as far as Iโ€™m concerned. The only time Iโ€™m going back and fourth between 2 apps, Iโ€™m well aware of which apps those are, so thereโ€™s no need for me to see the most recent app up at the top. It also doesnโ€™t work so well when you have custom icons for Slack. My โ€œmost recentโ€ app right now is the Slack icon, but I donโ€™t even have the Slack icon in my Station, I have my own Slack icons, so thatโ€™s kinda weird.

View -> Toggle Station developer tools -> select an element to inspect it -> experiment with styling. Unfortunately I think it has to be done whenever you relaunch Station, but at least itโ€™s possible.

My suggestion is to find the div with the class appcues-subdock-recent, which will also have a classname of c followed by some numbers (mine is c0121; I donโ€™t think itโ€™s autogenerated and subject to change, but Iโ€™m not sure). I changed the height of the .c0121 class to 0px instead of 30px. This caused the icon to disappear and I canโ€™t mouse over it anymore, but the CTRL+TAB keyboard shortcut still works if I want to use it.

On the bright side, this feature and how invasively it grabbed my attention has let me to discover that the CTRL+T quick switch is way more useful to me than Iโ€™d realized!

The quickswitch indicator thing in the top left under the search bar shows me profile pictures from my last used conversations on slack and -so- many people at the office thinks that Iโ€™ve somehow logged in as them on slack. Canโ€™t you make it clearer in the station UI that itโ€™s not -me- thatโ€™s supposed to be there?

  • Itโ€™s working for me
  • They are relevant but lacking
  • Yes
  • Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS

I am really liking it. I have tons of channels and this helps me switch between them meaninglessly. However, Iโ€™d love to have this cover more apps like messenger, whatsapp, discordโ€ฆ you name it!

Keep up the good work

I would like to have the quickswitch have another section for notifications, or maybe a hotkey for the notificiations?

What happens is, a notification comes in, it shows briefly on my desktop (macOS), and if Iโ€™m too late to click it, I have to hit my global hotkey for Station, and then hunt for the tab with the notification.

This issues is the same as a ticket I submitted in November - Cannot see Google Docs, Slides, or Sheets in Quick-Switcher

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

My problem is that when I connect Google Drive in Quick-Switch I can no longer see any Google items in Recents or in the Quick-Switch menu.


:warning: Mandatory details

  • :gun: Trigger โ€” Make sure I can see Google items in Recents and Quick-Switch menu, but then I connect to Google Drive via Quick-Switch.

  • :boom: Issue โ€” All the Google items I was previously able to see in Recents and Quick-Switch are no longer visible. Additionally, any new Google items I view in Station do not show up in Recents or Quick-Switch.

@Alexandre, this looks like a regression that was recently introduced. Any insights?

I updated to version 1.35, and I still have issues with google drive docs not showing up properly in the quick switch (see my previous post). Any update on that problem ? :pray: It ruins the quick switch experience when working with drive docs :cry:
