Issues with the drawer

Hello,

I have some issues with the drawer:

- I've set it up to swipe/slide from the left side, but the rounded edges of the drawer are still on the left side. That looks strange.
- There is no dark mode for the drawer? I think it would be good if it would follow the app settings with this. Either with automatic colors or with extra color settings.
- If I change the text size the icons don't seem to change their size. I think it would be better if they would do.

for the 1st
go to Drawer Settings tile -> Swipe Area , play with the "visible width" slider

for the 2nd I think it's too much plus the drawer must standout,
anyway it's a personal preference also (and I don't like dark mode 😂)

for the 3nd
icons are usually fixed size :) (they are not photos)

I hadn't noticed the rounded edges on the left hand side and I've been using MD for years with Swipe from the left side. So not really an issue for me.

I have a work around for drawer not having dark mode. I set the drawer colours to black as I have dark mode permanently set on the phone, unless I'm using the phone outside and its very sunny, which is not very often. Attached is a screenshot of my drawer which remains black regardless of dark/light mode setting.

I'm happy with the icon size as I don't change the text size. I found medium works best fore me. Again not really an issue for me.

I have the Swipe area colour set to black and opacity set to 0. This makes the Swipe area invisible, which is my preferred setting.

For the screen shot I changed colour to white and opacity to 100.

The swipe area is not the problem. If the drawer is open, two of the corners are rounded and if the drawer is at the left screen edge the rounded corners are at the wrong side.

ah you mean when the drawer is fully open !
haha, I replicated this and it's very minor indeed
I guess it's because there is a fixed graphic resource to display and it's made for the right side
@MacroDroidDev must add a new graphic for a left side drawer

Thank you both for your time today. During the day today it wasn't so easy to answer. Especially because it's a little bit hard to answer within the app. If I use the app for the forum, I can't see what I type. I must close the keyboard to see it. Now I know that using the forum with Chrome or Edge on the phone works much better.


Yes, I've seen that, but as I have said, it's not an issue for me.

I know. It was meant for @dsnz

My inner Monk sees things a little differently. He notices it every time the drawer is opened...

But we will see. At least the dev is informed now.

Hey @dhj49er
I think we have nearly identical setup 😉
And my drawer also close

I'm just curious, the top 5 text is this variables you use to show the status off your phone or what and how?

EDIT
Never mind, figured it out, nice feature

I used to do more in the macro, but found it interfered with the opening of the drawer, leading to the drawer stuttering and some variables not showing the correct values.
The current macro does not impact on the drawer opening, so probably best to keep the macro as short as possible and to avoid loops or computations.
I use boolean variables for the state of nearly everything MD can change and find showing important settings via the drawer to be invaluable.

Simple things don't have to be in the macro. They can be added with the text element. Magic texts in text elements seem to get refreshed at opening the drawer. Or am I missing something?

Not sure what you mean by simple things don't have to be in the macro.
Yes magic texts do get refreshed when the macro runs.

Not sure what you mean by simple things don't have to be in the macro.
For example, if you just want to show the SSID it wouldn't make sense to create a variable for it and fill the variable with the macro.
But if you want to work with conditions, e.g. showing something different if WiFi is off, then the only way would be to use the macro.
