Quick panel
« on: August 23, 2015, 02:05:48 pm »
We have a new feature being released today called the "quick panel"

The quick panel is a little dock that sits at the top of the screen and allows quick access to mode selection by a downward swipe or hover over the access tab. This update is in beta 26 that will be sent out today to community members via email.

included is an image of the dock.

This is defiantly not included in my version of Tablet Pro...
Looks great... I really need the newest version.

I really like this feature, but I think it can be made more ideal by implementing support for the following:

- Ability to have the quick panel at different locations based on the orientation of the device. At the moment, it just stays the exact same coordinates regardless of orientation, and this can be irritating, especially with the default setup when in portrait mode; it's not reachable.

- Similar to the Taskbar, ability to have quick panel at the top or bottom edges of the screen (left and right are obviously reserved for Task View and Action Center). At the moment, it's only usable at the top, having to always reach for the top is inconvenient. Just like everyone else, my hand holds the Tablet at the bottom, so, it's more convenient to have the quick panel accessible at the bottom. My Taskbar, I prefer it at the top and it auto-hides, so, no, it wouldn't be obstructing the quick panel.

- As I described in this post, there should be options to customize and assign whatever custom layout I want to the quick panel, for example I want a quick panel option for the "Side (right)" mode, which I customized to my liking.

Thanks in advance, hope you actually read these forum suggestion posts...

Hi Raaomoka,

Got the note. I'd love to see more of your layout setup. very interesting to me. Any chance you could post a few images or share more about your workflow? via email with me would be great, here on the forums also great.

Sure, I've thus far, just customized the Side (Right) layout to my liking. Here's a screen clip with more details (note, TA = TextAloud).

Regarding suggestion indicated in the picture, what I mean is for example, when you tap-tap-drag on the Surface Type cover, if you get to the edge of the trackpad before reaching where you want to drop the object, it automatically continues in the direction you were moving the object. That's my suggestion for both the scroll bars and the virtual touchpad.

Hi Raaomoka,

Wow, really like the style and the icons you used. Really nice setup! I also learned that ctrl + w closes the browser tab. pretty cool. I'm curious what do you specifically use this setup for? It looks like a task specific setup.

I use it when reading/proof-reading PDFs/Documents/Web pages (although I could probably assign those hotkeys to a gesture for the full-screen touchpad), or browsing in a non touch friendly browser like Chrome. It's fully made use of specifically in google Chrome.
