  1. Continue playing music from desktop

    I love how I can access my desktop from in the Rift now, it's awesome! However, not allowing music to continue playing in the background is a bit of a pain. I would like to be able to play music from my desktop without having to have a window open for it.

  2. place and pin an image of keyboard

    Dear Oculus, maybe you can implement this: outline your keyboard using Touch controller... take a picture of it and place it as overlay there using Touch controller. Then no need to track as long as it stays still

    Would also love to do this with, say, picture of keyboard instrument of choice

  3. multiple application on dash

    Hello, the Dash Idea and Oculus Desktop is very cool, I have tried it out for multiple window with Microsoft Word, but it crashed.
    However it works with single document on MS Word, both running with PowerPoint, Spotify, and a bit glitch with Google Chrome.

    Finger crossed its fixed on next patch
    Good job Guys

  4. Pointer accuracy issues

    Where I'm pointing and where it's actually clicking are different. Maybe it's just me but it's a frustrating issue

  6. Allow us to pin Home objects in Dash that show up in games.

    As a way to model your surroundings so you can avoid that coffee table or orient yourself. Or just so I can have a cool digital bird flying around in my Elite cockpit with me.

  7. I see a way to strengthen the VR exploration by adding uses.

    Additional uses for this technology could be to have a headset with specific abilities available in critical locations for helping desperate people in desperate situations. These could have an added forward facing camera to give the wearer and supervisor in a different location real imagery along with 2-way communication between point and superviser. Such could be in an unmaned nature lodge with lifesaving medical procedures. They could be worn by a team of people under the guidance of a manager when doing such as trying to find a child lost in a forest. A headset could even find a place…

  8. Differentiating contrast between Desktop mode and Dash mode

    It can be difficult to differentiate the difference between windows/apps pulled out of the Desktop mode window, and onto the Dash, and difficult to tell when the desktop mode is open. The Desktop mode window also sits on top of the dash.

    It would make things clearer if the Desktop mode window had a color configurable border around it. Wouldn't have to be too thick or pronounced.

  10. Fling to dismiss windows

    VR with hand presence should be a very natural process. Manipulating the environment directly rather than through button presses should be the end goal of any UX design in VR.

    With that in mind, I'd suggest allowing windows to be dismissed by grabbing and flinging them away, or at least dropping them in or flinging them toward a trash icon. Pushing a button is fiddly, and while there are other suggestions (e.g. pressing another button while holding the window) I think the more hands-on approach would feel more natural.

    Obviously this needs to go alongside other methods for non-Touch configurations.

  11. [Bug] Combo boxes don't show up for dragged apps (like Oculus Debug Tool visible hud options)

    The combo box is shown in the desktop view but not if I pulled the oculus debug tool out as a separate app.

  12. Put basic actions at the top level of Dash

    In the previous Void menu, most basic actions where immediately there: reset view, turn off Guardian.

    Now I have to go down at least one or more levels to get to them.

    Could you add a row of basic actions (like before) above or to the side of the Dash?

    As someone who switches between room-scale and seated vr, I mostly used the menu to turn Guardion on or off. This has become less convenient in the current system.

  13. Allow simultaneous grid alignment AND object clipping

    Allow objects to align to a grid of the Home structure, but also allow objects to clip through one another. This is helpful in creating new structures from existing structures, without having to carefully, painstakingly align them manually if wanting to also make them clip through one another.

    For example, a large shelf will snap next to a second large shelf, but being able to clip the ends through one another slightly can make turn it into one large shelf.

  14. Keyboard presses wrong key when one of the controlers hasnt released trigger yet.

    When typing on the keyboard with two controllers while pressing the trigger to type a letter with let's say right controller and before releasing right trigger you press left trigger it registers another press of the right controller letter.

  15. Bravo

    D'abord bravo et merci de nous donner ce magnifique outil. En ce qui concerne les suggestions, je voudrais savoir s il est possible de déplacer l'écran incurvé. Savoir aussi comment enlever facilement un écran qui à été epinglé dans l'appartement.

  16. The Dash ribbon gets in the way of pressing the button to quit VR apps

    When you open Dash to quit a game, it's button ribbon is directly in between your hand and the close button, blocking you from pressing it without awkwardly reaching up over the ribbon.

  17. Add Close & or Pin buttons on Oculus desktop Monitor selection buttons on dash.

    Right now pinning monitors can be hard if the virtual display is set far or if their is multiple oculus windows in front of the virtual display.

  18. Show hidden icons (idea or its a bug)

    Spending quite a bit of time using the desktop view within Dash and one action I can not figure out, on the Windows 10 taskbar as with previous version there is an ^ bottom right that brings up hidden programs running steam, voice attack and other things, I have yet to figure a way to access that in the desktop mode, I can hover over it, use the same trigger I would use to select and run things but it will not raise and show what is hidden. Out of that desktop it is a simple left click (show hidden…

  20. Now Playing icon in Dash tricky to use

    If you have something other than the currently playing app visible in the "center" screen, I would expect pressing the button for the current app to show me the window with Recenter/Quit. Instead, it quits Dash and I have to open it again.

    I would think quitting Dash would be unnecessary because it's easy to just use the Oculus button.
