|Summary||0021121: Project selection not usable with large number of projects|
The old project selection offered scrolling of the project list.
Depending on screen resolution, the problem starts when having about 30 projects.
Consider also that we don't offer any longer the extended project browser, so I expect a lot of users to be affected.
@cproensa - I am under the impression that we are retiring sub-projects feature, no?
That was proposed by Victor but has not been discussed thoroughly. IMO, about that proposal, is that subprojects as they exist now are a basic functionality on which many users rely.
If you think of the circle as an "expanded" indicator for a project folder, that may make more sense as a visual indicator of which tree path is selected.
The standard HTML selector does a good enough work, (but it does not support fancy graphics though). If going with a custom control, it should reflect most of the standard functionality of the standard.
Flawed as they may be, subprojects are quite useful and widely used. I don't think they should be retired.
Maybe the currently selected project can simply be displayed in bold text ? I'm not sure having an icon on really adds much value. IMO it reduces the list's readability; suggest reverting to '»' (or something similar), just for sub-projects.
