This is a repost of a request from issue #5421 on the old answers site.
I'm going to make as rational a plea as I can for Sparkol to jettison the incredibly bad VideoScribe file manager in favor of the default Windows and Mac OS file managers. I hope others will express their opinions.
Here are the ways that the VideoScribe File Manager actively harms user productivity:
All of the features above have been developed and refined for literally decades by Microsoft and Apple. Why reinvent the wheel with something inferior, which actively hurts your users?
I am unaware of a single benefit created by the VideoScribe file manager. The animation preview is interesting, but hardly crucial, and I doubt many users would miss it.
I was considering attaching a video of using Windows and Mac OS to search, sort and select files, but I am quite certain the Staff at Sparkol have used one or both of these operating systems in the last 25 years. My guess is that some of you agree with my criticisms, especially if you have any real design experience.
Update: On the old answers.sparkol.com site, if you click the "popular" button on the upper right, this issue is BOTH the most popular, and also the third most popular request.
I strongly agree with Dave's request! Standard generic windows and mac file managers would be a noticeable improvement in several ways.
Also agree with Dave...
In version 2.
Thanks for the detailed feedback & sorry for any frustration.
