The GRASS tool list is totally overwhelming. It would be much better if it started out in its collapsed form, instead of all submenus open full.

Rule of thumb: never present more than 12 options in a submenu.

#1 Updated by Redmine Admin about 16 years ago

Agreed. We're adding more commands, and the problem will increase with time. I think it will be good to structure the menus more clearly: we're working on a "import/export/vector/raster/3Dvisualization/expert mode/shell" subdivision, but directions will be welcomed.

#2 Updated by Tim Sutton almost 16 years ago

Moved to milestone 0.9 since this looks like it involves large changes and in 0.8.x we will only be doing bug fixing / stabilising

#3 Updated by Markus Neteler about 15 years ago

please collapse the toolbox listing... I heard many comments about this from GRASS users.

Additional idea: make use of the keywords each GRASS command has - through a search engine as already present for EPSG projection names. That would be a great help. Open a new wish for this?


#4 Updated by Markus Neteler over 14 years ago

Again, please collapse the toolbox listing. This is a major PITA. I have updated now to Release-0.10.0 but still it is all expanded...


#5 Updated by Tim Sutton over 14 years ago


I will be revising the grass toolbox with module search and module categories before 1.0 release of QGIS. Please bear with us until I get a chance to do this.



#6 Updated by Tim Sutton over 14 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to In Progress

#7 Updated by Tim Sutton over 14 years ago

Please note its still expanded in the 0.11.0 release but there is the new list control with filtering support now in 0.11.0. For 1.0.0 I am doing a larger overhaul of the GRASS toolbox and will make the tree collapsed by default.

#8 Updated by Markus Neteler about 14 years ago

I just tried trunk but it appears yet expanded... I keep fingers crossed!

#9 Updated by Tim Sutton about 14 years ago

This is on my todo list before we release 1.0 - will get to it once API cleanup is finalised.

#10 Updated by Jürgen Fischer almost 14 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

implemented in dc6b7cdc (SVN r10497)

#11 Updated by Markus Neteler almost 14 years ago

Thanks, really appreciated. The toolbox is nicely collapsed also in 1.0.x.

Thanks so much, Markus
