deleting and using variables

Postby Mafuta » Wed Nov 29, 2017 4:33 am

I'm blind and rely on a screen reader, so some of the below might relate to that and the semi-accessibility of this section of the UI.

1. Can't delete variable supposedly in use
I can't delete a variable in a group profile, because i keep getting a message saying it's in use in the profile that i'm currrently editing.
this is despite having previously, in all profiles, set the combo to None, and clicked OK , and also checked that the variable is not referenced anywhere.
The offending variable has no value, and is redundant.

2. I have 3 group profiles say, A, B, C, and a number of independant ones, and 4 variables - say V1, V2, V3, V4 (empty).
When i select V1 in the combo, V1, V2 and V3 show in the list box.
Select V2, and V2 and V3 show.
Select V3 and only V3 shows.
Select V4(valueless), and only V3 shows in list.
Can't work out the logic...?
Only way to select all seems to be to select the first in combo, then select all 3 in list box and press OK...?

3. Is there a reason for having to declare a user-defined variable in a profile before using it?
Is it possible to just have them all in a list as grobally available, possibly with a distinctive prefix like SyncBack's ones, and then just use them as required, anywhere?
I daresay there is a reason, but it would have to be a very convincing one to outweigh the current arrangement - complicated and a recipe for confusion...?
eg. If one wants a variable in a subprofile to override one in the group profile, simply make another with a suitable name etc...

Re Q1 above
Ok Sorry, i get it - don't select, in the combo, the variable you want to delete! A bit counter intuitive, but so be it - that's OK :)
Q2&3 still open...
