New Crop Button Placement needs work

Changing where the crop video button is on the interface is fine—but the settings for cropping the video are another side of the screen, which is annoying for someone working with 27 inches of prime display real estate. Previously, the crop button and the crop settings were relatively closer together. Would be cool if the designers are aware of this inconvenience and take it into consideration. Best, BB

    Where do you think the parameters should go?

    I'm not sure if the space near the button will support parameter editing..
    I see the awkward mouse move to get to the parameters though.
    I'll see what the developers can do FLOW-11274

    • CraigS I guess they moved the crop button for a reason—moving it back would be the most natural correction; creating a drop down menu from the crop button might also work, seeing as how you can only manipulate the parameters through the custom boxes or the drop down selection

      Benjamin Boyce I think the move is specific to Big Sur and possibly Apple macOS standards as the position didn't change for Catalina.

      Benjamin Boyce Given the macOS version standards, would using a keyboard shortcut to open Crop help as it would avoid needing to click the button and move the mouse to the parameters?

    • CraigS I'll look into that (is there a shortcut already programmed into the SF editor?)

      Benjamin Boyce There's no shortcut at the moment. This would be the simplest alternative (avoid using the button and mouse altogether to access).

      Benjamin Boyce Following up as developers want to know if a shortcut key to open Crop would help.
