Hello I’ve been a user of version 4 for quite a while now and overall I’m quite happy with it. I’ve just taken a look at version 6 to see how it’s coming along and I have a few concerns over the interface compared to version 4.
I realise that version 6 is still under development and some things are missing while other things may change.
Where have the columns gone? I’m missing the modified date, password strength bars under Logins and most importantly the Folder Name column under All.
I don’t seem to be able to resize the left hand column like I can column 2 and 3 and there’s a lot of wasted space between the categories and the amount figures that I’d prefer to see used in the other columns.
Limited vertical space/massive icons/ - The individual login items seem gigantic compared to version 4 and now I’m only able to see a fraction of the logins in version 6 before I have to start scrolling. This despite the fact that version 4 uses some of the vertical space to display the login information below the logins, rather than on the right like in version 6. Part of this is down to the display of the Alphabet as you scroll down but even without this the logins are a lot bigger. I would personally prefer much small icons and fonts and get rid of the alphabet to allow for more items to fit on screen.
In version 4 you can view login information by clicking once on the login and viewing the information in the bottom pane or double-clicking the login to view the information in a separate window. The information displayed in the separate window is easier to read but when I double-clicked a login in version 6 nothing happened. Are you still planning on having the popup windows or is this gone?
Revealing a password in version 6 now requires two clicks instead of the one in version 4.
My server items are kept separate in version 6 under a servers category but my generic accounts and ftp accounts have been merged under logins. What’s the thinking behind this? These items are not login items because they have no information to login to anything, they just contain account details and other secure information. Why have you decided to put non-login items in the login category? Why are servers separate but not the other items?
Tags and Folders are MIA.
Watchtower and duplicated categories are MIA.
Password Generator is a simpler version of the version 4 version, are all the 4 options going to be added?
Overall I feel like the current interface is too large (large icons, large fonts) and there is a lot of wasted space. Are you planning on tightening things up a bit and producing a more compact interface? I’m also concerned that some version 4 features might never make it over to version 6. Are you planning on feature parity between version 4 and 6?
When version 6 is released and works with local vaults what will the advantages be for version 4 users upgrading to version 6? I understand there are technical benefits, building from scratch, better foundation to build on, better support for high DPI screens, etc but what about from the viewpoint of an average user (who doesn’t have a high DPI screen)?
