At the moment there are these settings available, but if I have haptic feedback on, and vibration off in silent mode, silent mode overrides the other setting. It would be nice if it didn't override it, so I would get haptic feedback on e.g. pulley menus while I have silent profile on.

Would be also nice to get choose only pulley menu vibrate without keyboard vibrate.

Yes, it would be a great benefit to have haptical feedback in pulley menus even though vibration for incoming calls and messages is disabled.

This actually must be a bug, because if that's how the developers wanted it to act (only one button controlling haptic feedback+vibration), then what's the other item for? Conversely, there being a button for toggling haptic feedback, that is what it should do - independently of what another setting is doing (unless the two would rule each other out, which is not the case here).

@bennypr0fane, the other item is for those who want to have vibration for alarms, ringer etc. but no haptic feedback in vkb, menus etc. And the first one is like a main switch for all vibration. But yes, it would be better if the settings were independent.

if we have one button that overrides something set by another button - but the two settings are not mutually exclusive - and the whole thing is like that on purpose, then it's not a bug, but a design flaw :-)

I wanted to have most of the vibrations are OFF (email, sms, alerts, incoming calls, etc.), except the vibration when touch of the virtual keyboard and warnings of course.

So I edited most of .ini files in /usr/share/ngfd/events.d directory ( comment the ffmemless.effect lines ) + reboot.

Works fine, but I should rather see this options in phone settings.

A GUI interface to non-graphical feedback daemon (ngfd) would be handy, as requested here.
