Thanks for the response coreplayer2.
For the longest time I too was doing this all wrong You are supposed to highlight any and/or all items to check
I am aware of this thanks. The current system is, however, cumbersome when selecting all from a long scroll list. I am just suggesting an easier method to 'select all', which could be a select all checkbox, Ctrl-a keyboard shortcut or right-click 'select all' option.
AFAIK It has always been this way, "Missing Dependencies Reporting" only reports if there are missing dep's.
That doesn't mean the functionality shouldn't be enhanced. You're an experienced user and i'm looking at it with fresh eyes from a new user perspective. Apps inconsistent message output (and lack of) to a new user appears unpolished or worse yet broken.
To reiterate the example cited above:
- Dependencies > Missing Dependencies Reporting: Also provides no dialogue output upon completion. Odd as Dependencies > Fetch Missing Dependencies ouputs 'Dependency check completed. No missing dependencies found'.
Why should Missing Dependencies Reporting output nothing, especially since it's supposed to be reporting
something, but Fetch Missing Dependencies ouput a completion message. Consistency would be appreciated from a new user trying to figure out the system.
Edit: Or maybe these two categories could be combined into one - 'check and fetch missing dependencies', although this would likely require more work under the hood. Is there ever a valid use case just to check but NOT install a missing dependency?
