Let's hide this one (too long)
I guess it’s about interpretation… For example:
When I read that last half of the sentence “so I have no UI at all”… I pretty much automatically start to fill in the missing word, and I just add in the word “visible”… and that only happens because I feel that it is implied in the context of the comment. It’s not even something I think about, I just understand that the spirit of the comment is that it would read something like one of the follow options:
- “So I have no visible UI at all”
- “So I have no UI showing at all”
- “So I have no visible UI showing at all”
they all mean basically the same thing… and if I were to shorten them to a minimal form… I’d just say it as it was written “So I have no UI at all”.
However, in a way technically you win on this, because you are right in a strict and literal sense. The original comment on it’s own does say that he has no UI… and that of course can’t work for all of the reasons that you have been pointing out.
But for whatever reason… I just fly right over all that… and fill in the blank because the overall discussion is about hiding part of the UI and showing SU in Full Screen Mode… and at that point we are talking about various forms of ‘visibility’… Tool bars that hide… modeling space that gets zoom in on. So I lock into to automatic interpretation mode without even thinking about it.
The main exception I took to your comment… is that I DO assume the all users who run software primarily by KB shortcuts tend be more advanced, and more experienced.
Beginner don’t know what KB shortcuts are, and why they are so useful. And advanced user usually do.
If you think about it. it’s built into the very name… The so called ‘shortcut’ is a shortcut across the UI itself, or at least the graphical UI as it maybe should be called.
So, I’m simply giving the advanced users the credit of knowing what the UI is, because they know it well enough to understand that they can take a shortcut that speeds up their workflow. And in that sense I wouldn’t turn around and tell them that they might be confused about what a UI is.
The disingenuous term is that I’m also assuming that you know all this stuff too… and likely even more. So I was surprised, and wrongly suspicious about what you might have been trying to say… if one were to start reading between the lines.
You have to remember some of the subtle jabs that were made towards SU prior to all of this… How many times was it mentioned that other ‘Professional’ programs have adopted Dark Mode so therefore SU should to. Thats all fine, and it gets a pass if used once or twice. But when it gets mentioned much more than that… I start to see an undercurrent message that suggests that SU is NOT a Professional Program, because It’s not using Dark Mode.
So the combination of the two… is what I reacted to. And general personal shortcomings account for a number of misplaced sensitivities.
Anyhow, You are a nice guy Anoammar… and I don’t have a big problem deleting a bad statement out of my comment (just tell me what you want to see gone… even if it’s the whole thing, and I"ll get rid of it)… this is your thread and I didn’t intend to cause trouble… But I did intend to stick up for a couple of people who I thought were being framed in the wrong light.
It’s more than safe to say that they likely do know what a UI is, and they are probably not too confused.
As far as your so called ‘English’ goes… Did you happen to notice how many times I edit my own comments? My post above it already sitting at 7 edits (and it will probably be up to 13 by the middle of next week)… and it’s not going to be too long before this one start to climb the ladder either… Yet somehow… if I take a look at yours I can’t find anything wrong with them. You haven’t had to edit even One. . . So I’m pretty much NEVER going to blame your English (that which is better than my own) for too much of anything… trust me on that. It seems to be very good.
