After looking those screen grabs on os4depot...
I need to try the Finnish locale one day.

+ Prefs center is the modernish way, just grown with the old one, but people tend to learn new things ... slowly.

It is nice and I'm using it, however I would like it to be improved in the user page or by scanning automatically the prefs directory and adding the non standard pref programs/icons to the user page or activating the drag and drop to add prefs icons in the user page.

regards

Thanks, will try it (but the date is 3 years old), it's being updated since then?

Congrats to making an app that looks messier than the prefs drawer. :P
It looks like a really nice effort but those icons and texts really needs to be divided equally in columns.

I concur, the way it is now, the word "nice" looks a bit lost in that sentence.

I asked the author two years ago IIRC and he told me it was not possible to have the icons aligned in a nice grid because of some ReAction limitation or something along that line..

the way prefscenter is now, its both nicer and more practical to use AmiDock.

Or even just Workbench. If you really need your prefs sorted into such more or less arbitrary groups, you could just move them into separate drawers, maybe make some links from the original Prefs drawer to please any program/system component who prefers them being there, and just user the new drawers. Perhaps it could even be made possible to optionally display a file comment under each icon's name in WB, then we'd have it all - with much neater sorting and aligning .

Not that I personally like the idea myself at all. Whenever I have to use a new Windows 7 system, one of my first actions is always to go to the Control Panel and set it to display all actions as small icons ungrouped. But taste is a matter of taste, so to speak ...

Best regards,

Niels

It look likes your solution uses only single row per group and short text labels. When my solution has longer description texts displayed. It's those text labels which makes better layout impossible, it seems. Plus it's using multiple rows per group. Or I'll have to split bigger groups into two smaller ones. Maybe Orgin can add you to the PrefsCenter project and you can add your solution as the second choice.

The idea was to replace strange words like ASL and AHI with more meaningful descriptions. That's why text labels have to be bigger while keeping the layout looking nice.

For 'strange words' you can easily use popup notifications (like MUI's help bubbles).

Really like this, have it in my AmiDock for easy access to all (I think they are all there) my Prefs

Manually added Prefs that were not there by default.
