Please give all sliders two 'ears', for inc and dec of minimal units (ideal for touchy devices)

Declined

An ear is a button at the far end of the slider. Pressing the ear does increment (right) or decrement (leaft ear) the value of the variable attached to the slider.

- Using a mouse only one cannot give the position value exactly (so one has to open the properties dialog).


And: A right button click on the slider my give the option to edit the value directly.

You can already click to the left or right of the "blob" to increment/decrement

Thanks! I never tried this. But it works.

But: In 1 of 4 cases I did not fail to hit the line but the preferences dialog popped up. This is because of the double click which is generated automatically when the user clicks to fast.

Once you've uploaded it, there's no problem with double-click, eg

How to control the width of the line of the slider?

If one could use different inc values on the 'ears' (different to the generic inc-Value which is useful for the animations) one could position the blob very efficiently.

If you do Options -> Restore Default Settings you'll get the correct thickness back


How did you make it thin?
