Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Cleaning up the UI

man...the UI is a MESS especially Preferences ..., im handchecking every Preferences panel right now , reordering them , realigning them and overall giving them a more constant look , instead of thousands of button heights , checkbox heights , text lengths , chaos alignment, different spaces between each button etc...

the worst were the Graphics panel and Chat which both had those Accordions hidden until you click on the first one , which MUST be changed , so i realigned those whole panels and even could make the preferences panel 8 pixel thiner and 10 pixel shorter , how´s that possible you may ask? magic? no , if every button is 7 pixel away from the above one you can save 2 pixel per button when reducing it to 5 which looks better anyway now we got 10 buttons x 2 pixel makes space for 20 pixel which is equiv 1 new button

left Panel is the new one , right panel is the old original one
