Proof That iOS Still Hasn’t Gotten Undo Right
iOS has a long way to go when it comes to the level of consistency and polish of macOS.

Personally, if I were designing an iOS drawing app I’d probably go the first route, and follow Apple Notes’s lead with “↺” and “↻” buttons. But to Procreate’s credit, they clearly know these multi-finger tap gestures are both unusual, not intuitive, and utterly non-discoverable, because the very first thing they do when you first launch the app is teach you about them. Think about that: iOS user interface conventions are so shallow, so widely and wildly inconsistent, that an app proclaimed by Apple as the very best of the year has to start, as the very first thing you see when you launch it, by teaching you how to use Undo. That’s a sad state of affairs.

Interesting point about the menu bar. The humble menu bar may be one of the most innovative and enduringly useful UI design patterns of all time.

I’m left even more impressed by the original Mac team who got so much of these things right early on. iOS is eleven years old now and it’s still struggling with UI design consistency or design leverage.

What it comes down to, I think, is that the menu bar has become a vastly underestimated foundation of desktop computing. Once heralded, the menu bar is now seen as a vestige. I’m not arguing that iOS should have a Mac-style menu bar. I’m simply pointing out that without one, iOS is an 11-year-old platform that is still floundering to establish consistent conventions for some basic features, let alone complex ones, that are simple and obvious on the Mac.

Imagine going back in time to tell a MacPaint user in 1985 that they’d have to learn how to use Undo in an Apple-award-winning paint app in 2018. That’s where we are.

Душераздирающее о Qt |
Я на это уже жаловался, но в фейсбуке, а не тут.

Но просматривая сегодня Qt mailing lists/development не смог пройти мимо:

Несчастный пользователь пишет:

I'd like to point out how badly this issue has been handled. It's been reported on February 2016 and marked as P4.To me, it seems a nonsense to ignore issues like this, especially now that Qt3D offers a lot of possibilities and sooner or later you might need to switch your app to core profile.
И действительно, смотрим в QTBUG-51064:

Created: 11 февраля 16 года
Версия 5.5.1 - вот тут вероятно засада, в 16-м вовсю пилили 5.6, но еще недопилили, но все силы были уже там
Ну и да, до сих пор недочинено.
С моими багрепортами - история, впрочем, еще хуже. Тут давеча робот мне прислал писем "поскольку все очень старое - я все закрываю, прощевайте", про несколько багов оптом. Так и таскаем патчики с собой.

P.S. А, да, в фейсбуке мне тогда написали, что покупка лицензии за деньги проблему (более быстрых) багфиксов не решает.

P.P.S. При этом, ежики плачут, колются, используют, вариантов то нет.

wxWidgets это нездоровая копия парадигм MFC в кроссплатформенном фантике. QT при всех своих недостатках намного лучше особенно если нужна работа под Мак и Windows.
