Some of the most common organizational tasks for a typical user start with creating a new folder. We should make that easy and obvious by putting a button for it in the toolbar.
-1 to cluttering Dolphin's toolbar
Do you have any base for your "common task" claim? Next we'll get a "Show hidden files", "Terminal", "Delete" button.......
I would rather like to see a "contextual" sub toolbar below the address bar showing tasks related to the current view and/or selected item(s) like Windows Explorer has it. There we could also place the "Empty Trash" button inside Trash.
True, but buttons without labels have worse usability--especially when they don't look like buttons until you hover over them, as is the case for ours.
Strongly agree. Alas I think that is a bit beyond my programming abilities at this point. I would like to see such a thing anywhere icons/items can be selected--File dialogs, Gwenview, Folder View, etc. This would also make these views super touch friendly and improve usability for the default single-click setting. See T8187#132928 and T8187#139062. The GNOME folks are considering doing this for Nautilus, but I think ours could be even better.
Should we abandon this effort and focus on that?
