Removal of Slider Control

  • Status: Already Implemented


Please remove the slider controls as they get distracting, especially when Shades is not in use. Maybe fade it out after 5 seconds when it is in use.

I assume that you're aware that you can disable the slider control by setting the Slider control dropdown to "None" in the preference panel?

Missed that. Thanks. One click on/off for all of them would be nice

It is enough to have one slider, the one in the sunglasses at top of the screen. The other one,at boom left is not necessary. It disturbes for instance when I work with Lightroom.

As explained above, you can disabled the on-screen slider in the Shades preferences panel.

+1 on this, there should be an easy option or pref checkbox to disable this slider...

UPDATE: I did not see the option to disable the slider, but I just did (on the IPS tab) thanks to the comment above and to this bug tracker list... It's a good tool, thanks! Think I'll donate... Especially nice is the fact you can adjust the brightness for an external monitor, which is my case... Can't believe there's no Apple "built in" way to do this.
