[SUGGESTION/BUG]Hardware Acceleration Settings

Post by death.crafter »

Next to Hardware Acceleration check box it's written (Requires restart). And folks take it as a restart of system instead of the app.

Here is a snap:

Change it so that it conveys what it actually means.
P S.: And Brian have a rainmeter restarter in his repo so I don't think it will be very hard to give a restart warning, or a button after you change the settings. Well it is not that big of a problem.
Thanks,

Not an unreasonable observation. Let us look into removing that warning, and instead setting some kind of "dirty / clean" flag that can track when that checkbox is changed, and show / hide a "Restart Rainmeter" button that basically automatically restarts Rainmeter.

While you are at it put a skins folder button somewhere where folks can go over and delete skins. It's a pain typing
Go over to "Documents\Rainmeter\Skins" and delete the skin you want.
Actually what I was gonna suggest is give an delete option natively but I thought you would have considered this a long time ago and decided against it for some reason.

I think that a button to open the Skins folder is just overkill...

Lol... Then the phrase becomes
In Manage window right-click on the skin you want to delete and Open folder. Then Move up a directory and delete the skin you want.
Jokes aside thanks for taking your time. You know what's best for the app.
