I’m having two issues with Glide navigation which i don’t know how to solve:
- The first is the Scroll Threshold range which doesn’t work for sections with little content: say for example a list of two or three links. Why not allow the use specify a greater ranger or the full range (0-100%) or even provide another alternative unit like pixels? This can be experienced opening the file linked below this post:
open it, change to preview mode and click section 20 on the glide nav items on the left > Note how the highlight blue box highlight the section 21 rather than 20.
The second refers to a specific situation for which i have created a sample file (linked below). When we use a large number of glide nav items (for a documentation page with several sections for example) which have a larger height that the browser page (because they are simply larger than the browser max height or because the browser window isn’t maximised and just using half of the available screen space), the user can’t select the invisible nav items because they don’t scroll. Open the attached file below and try this:
set the RapidWeaver window to half the screen size height so you are only able to see the glide nav items up to section 14 in Preview Mode
- start scrolling the page slowly - the glide nav items will be highlighted in blue while you do it- until the highlight blue box disappear on the item 15
My question is: how does the user select the items below the item 14 if they don’t start scrolling up? If you continue scrolling down, the glide nav items will start scrolling when the content items reaches section 25/26, but until there the have no way to use the glide nav items on the left to choose a section.
