In regards to Themes - Id like to keep the app as simple as possible for the moment. What I did have an idea about is 'Send Logs' from the Menu.
This would make a tar.gz and upload all relevant logs that devs need to see in order to fix a problem. This is already an About box on steroids, so we may need to just concentrate on refinement for now.

I have changed the code at my end to match now.Your changes make it clear as to what each menu is for :)
I have also made code changes -
I duplicated a label "l3" and did not add a grid below it so it was not in use anyhow, but the line needed deleting as if a grid is added at a future check it would change the spacing.Look for two of this line one below another, around line 108
Code: [Select]
l3 = Label(window, text="     ")The other changes were tidying, in the define area, lines 38 and lines 41 are now switched with each others line.So that all the define of the Open Url are together and tidy.Rather than 1-7 of Open Url, then a def close window, then def open url 8.





Code with the edits above done, and also with all of your edits done, so I have it all up to date now.

In regards to Themes - Id like to keep the app as simple as possible for the moment. What I did have an idea about is 'Send Logs' from the Menu.
This would make a tar.gz and upload all relevant logs that devs need to see in order to fix a problem. This is already an About box on steroids, so we may need to just concentrate on refinement for now.

The "Send Logs" sounds like it would be a useful app for both members and devs.

Concentrating on refinement sounds good.

When does LL 5.0 get released ?

Do you have a list of apps, or a poll of apps for LL 5.0  and beyond ?

When does LL 5.0 get released ? - There's no official Roadmap until the end of Series 4.x, but you can assume around 1st June 2020.

Do you have a list of apps, or a poll of apps for LL 5.0 and beyond ? Not yet, to early. I'm still considering what if much at all, I can introduce to 4.x We are pretty complete now.

Looks like there has been a slight misunderstanding with the small LL logo in the top left hand corner of the app. That icon is supposed to be on the taskbar. Sorry for any confusion.

icon removed
Here you can see what I had wrote previously from the image, how the menubar shrinks to fit the font size of the menus, if an icon was used there at the same size it would be this size, whereas it expanded to produce the same space above the icon rather than above the fonts, as the icon was too big, so it made it too big a space above the fonts.It might help someone else if they weren't sure about it. Last icon was 24x24 ,so it might work with 16x16 icon instead.
