OK, in Vortex 0.17.3, if a plugin is in the DEFAULT group, then the DEFAULT text doesn't show up in the Group Column, and as a side benefit, made the Group column that much easier to read.


Ex. 0.17.3 plugin load order with 'invisible Default Group text"

0.17.3 Plugin List, whether a bug or not, having the Default Group not show "Default" in the plugin list,  (since it's assumed that if a plugin isn't assigned to a group, it's in the default group), plus less text speeds up the interface...


0.17.5 Plugin List, the Assigned Groups are buried in a Sea of "DEFAULT" for every single entry that isn't assigned a group, making it harder to find the plugins that are actuall assigned to a group.


Could there be a toggle, or just bring back the 'bug/feature' that made the DEFAULT text invisible?
It makes looking at the plugins list, and the group or group some plugins assigned to, extremely easy to see.
I.E. IF a plugin isn't assigned to a group, why have any text for that plugin?

Next version will use a different style for the default group so it's easier to visually distinguish and also, if you like, you could then use a css rule to hide them entirely.

Having a toggle in the ui for things like this feels a bit like a slippery slope where eventually we have hundreds of toggles for all kinds of small UI preferences to the point where you can't find the ones you care about any more, hence why I prefer not having toggles for stuff that can be solved through themes, hope you understand.

Will there be a Knowledge Base article on how to hide it for those of use who do not talk ccs?

I'd like this too, because I use the COMPACT theme, and I still haven't found WHERE to turn off the Menu contracting and expanding.
I want the menu visible without the opening and closing, but have no idea where to find the css to edit that

To change css you first have to clone a theme, then you'll find an "Edit CSS..." link on the bottom. This directly opens the associated editor to the file (if you have one).

 

Otherwise the file is at %APPDATA%\Vortex\themes\<name of your theme>\style.scss

 

The rule to hide these will look like this:

.plugin-group-default {
  display: none;
}

Ah, thanks, in an earlier version that would open my CSS editor but it would be blankl
