    Has this feature actually made you go back to a previous version? That would be a real shame.

    How exactly is it getting in the way? Do you think it's showing for too long or are the notifications simply too large? (just as an example)

    Please let us know :) tagging Thomas Axel as an FYI and also Ian Wilson as they were the OP in the linked post.

    I think the main issue for me is the animation swiping up. If it just faded away in the same place would be nicer.

    Size wise I think i'ts fine. And I do like the response of it letting you know what command you've just done, but when i'm toggling back and forth between different view modes and it keeps appearing and swiping up it gets pretty repetitive. So maybe drop the swiping up animation.

    I know this sounds like a trivial problem but I just noticed that it annoyed me and kept taking away my focus from the images I was looking at.

    Jack-W - i don't think they show for too long. If you wanted them I'd say the time they show for is about right. I don't personally find the fading upwards an issue. To be honest, I hadn't even noticed it and had to go back and try it to see what Per Möller was referring to. Nor are they too large - again, if I wanted them I'd say they are of a suitable size. But being able to turn them off would be nice. It's not so much of an issue that I would want to go back to a previous version!

    And I didn't know they were called feedback notifications.

    I also went back to 16.25, 16.3 needs a lot of work. Loading a 1:1 preview takes forever now, crazy how this program just keeps getting worse in regard to hardware optimization. I also don't like the animated text boxes, I see no reason to include them.

    Maybe it's some accessibility thing pushed by HR, but this is a junky feature, completely unnecessary.

    I too find this feature very infuriating - needless visual clutter that is alerting me to an action that I know I've taken. There should definitely be a way to disable this feature. I understand for new users it could be beneficial to see what keys are doing what action, but for advanced users this is unnecessary and distracting.

    I find them popping up on screen whenever I do certain actions a distraction and unnecessary for my workflow. I guess because I know Capture I don’t feel I need a reminder of what I’ve done, but I accept useful for beginners or Lightroom converts.

    An option to turn them off would be appreciated.

    Isn't it possible to turn these off in the notification settings (last item)?

    No I think you'll find that's something different.

    Apologies, for some reason I had this tied in with Live. For whatever reason, this issue isn't something I see so I'll step back :-).

    „No I think you'll find that's something different.“

    Then add another Item to notification settings… It is not so difficult to do, is it?

    Hi ernst.w - no point telling me to add another item to notification settings, I'm just a Capture One customer, not a Capture One developer. As you'll see from the second post in this thread, I have been one of those asking for this change!

    I second an option to turn those off. 
    I really wonder what's the purpose of this feature?

    I think these notifications were added because users inadvertently find themselves in some screen and have no idea how they got there (grid enabled, focus mask enabled, highlight / shadow warnings enabled, etc). When they get into some state they weren't expecting the shortcut notification will tell them what they pressed to get there.

    I see and i understand that.. but it's really short-sighted to enforce this feature for all users.
    I'm pretty sure that they will introduce this option soon.

    ;) I know very well. Insert „they could/should“. Better now?

    I support the suggestion to be able to turn it off.

    However, personally, I don't find it distracting or annoying. It may be that, so far, in my usage I have not worked with many images that result in the advice text being extremely visible on screen.

    I can see that for new Capture One users the feature may be of some benefit, but for experienced or more advanced users it is just distracting and unnecessary.  If you’ve taken the time to create your own set of shortcuts, you don’t need to be told you used one or that you've undone an adjustment. As it stands I’m probably getting an average of at least 4-5 alerts per image I edit!. Very annoying and distracting. Ideally it would be good to be able to switch it off in either the settings or the view menu. If it’s not possible to entirely switch off the alerts, at least getting it smaller and to the edge of the screen and to appear for less time would be helpful.

    It would be interesting to know what prompted the addition of the feature in the first place.

    Presumably someone, somewhere, identified the need - possibly user requested.

    With that knowledge a suitable amendment could be discussed more inclusively.

    This has ben bothering me too. It's so distracting when you're trying to notice subtle differences. Can you please make it an option to be turned off??

    Actually I like the notifications, but I can see that some people find it disturbing. So there should be an option to switch it off, similar to other things.

    I would not upgrade to any version of C1 that would not allow me to turn off notifications that appear on the image.

    On Mac it's under Settings>>Notifications>>Top checkbox.  I assume something similar on Windows.  Edit>>Preferences maybe?

    I'm on Mac.. but German Version. I go to "Voreinstellungen" (settings) (CMD+,) - there is nothing like notification. There is Warnungen (warnings) but nothing that sounds like feedback notification or key-press notification

  • Tino Nettling

    wow .. if I set CO to English I find it immediately under notifications. In the German version the notification tab doesn't exist.



    I reported this to the support.

    Thanks for pointing this out. As you say, not mentioned in the release notes, so I had not realised they had done this. I'm very pleased to be able to turn this off!

    Hey!

    You can trick CO: first set the program to english, turn off the notifications, and set it back to german.

    The notification setting will still be off!
