So, it's been a while since i'm trying V6 of AAO, and i'm starting to understand why a lot of people prefers remaining in V5.
While it is true that V6 editor opens MANY new possibilities, it just slows your work. A LOT.
1st issue) In V5, you could set a default background for every character. That was extremly helpful, especially when creating trials, where the background changes every time the "camera" focuses on defense-prosecutor-witness. That saves a lot of time since you do not have to set the background everytime. Just pick a character and write.
Here, this feature is removed for some reason, so trials require much more time. I suggest reintroducing default backgrounds.
2nds issue) Wasted space. The more frames you can see in one screen, the better it is. I don't know what resolution are you using on your PC, mine is 1366 X 768, and the editor is so big that there is actually an horizontal scroll bar. Why is that? Isn't there really any way to fit everything in one screen just as in V5?
Space is wasted also in Height: Was it really needed an almost totally unused extra row just for the "Set Action" button? Couldn'it be shrinked a little and placed few pixels under "Merge With Text"?
Frames are so big in this editor...
3rd issue) The "space" issue is applied at almost everything: Characters, Evidence, Music, Places. Why does everything has to be so big? I can barely see 3 evidences at time without scrolling. In V5 everything was smaller and it was waaaaay more comfortable.
4th issue) That "tab" with all the voices named "characters""evidences""places" etc., placed at the top should not follow the screen when you scroll down. Because of the space issue. That thing is huge. Also, it's completely useless: One can simply open 2 browser pages if he has to view 2 voices of the editor at the same time (Like, for example, Storyboard and Evidence)
5th issue) Sometimes, when the trial's title is a bit long, it covers the tab's buttons at the top of the page.
V5 had a simple yet functional interface. V6 has a lot to offer, but as it is now, i find it very uncomfortable to work with.
