A slight pet peeve...

Is it just me, or is it bothering any of you that it kills seconds off your clock just to LOOK for the right flowers having to scroll left to right...

I end up losing a good 5 seconds scrolling...at times that five seconds I could have used...

Just wondering if you all were bothered by this too?

YES! I was coming here to post this same thing. Just when I think I'm actually getting better @ the rush orders, I have to start scrolling for flowers and I may as well forget about making it in time then.

What I do is I look at the flowers the customer likes (you can still read it even when the Rush Order window thingy has popped up), then scan where those flowers are so I know where to point my cursor. When I have an idea which flowers I'll be planting, that's the only time that I click the Rush Order thingy. Spares me from scrolling through all the flowers and helps me not to get too panicky! Hope that helps!

 Yes I actually have posted about that before.  It really sucks because then you can not even finish the garden because you have to search for the flowers & lose all your time :(

I have the same problem.  I can sometimes do the rush orders, but they have to be more than 25 seconds.  Otherwise, I just abandon them.

I do the same thing. It really does help if you look to see what kind of flowers that they like and look to see where they are so that you don't waste time.

Thanks ladies ;)

I do look at where the flowers are before I push start on the rush orders, I do also make sure my screen is pulled centered so i can see and get to everything fairly quickly....

Even with all that, I do make most of the challenges...but there are times I don't due to having to scroll even though I've done all that, I've gained alot of flowers so just scrolling to the end takes up to five seconds.....

I hope cafe finds a way to make this a tad bit more player friendly :0)

Yes this is my number one problem with the game right now. I too make a "plan" before I start the job but it's still a pain and will only get worse as we learn more flowers (and I love learning new flowers!) I wish there was either a way to see all flowers at once or to rearrange the order of the flowers ourselves before we hit start so we could put the flowers we're going to use where we want them.

Looking at what flowers you need for the timed plantings before you start does not help when you have to use the scroll bar to get to the flowers you need. I agree with you that we need to be able to see all the flowers at once and/or be able to arrange them in the order we want them. Rabbit

Exactly.  I also do these things and it sometimes don't work if I need the first flower & the last flower the scroll time is killing me.

Ditto. It needs to be a little more player friendly so we don't have to kill so much time scrolling from one end of the list to the other.
