GB_2 added a comment to D24265: support global edit mode.

Why not? Currently you have to open the context menu for the panel or desktop, so it's inconsistent and confusing if you want to move a widget and the don't get the option to (without click+hold).

I'd also add the "Customize Layout..." button to the widget menu, that way you can discover it much more easily.

An "Add Panel..." button in the toolbox would be very useful too :-)

GB_2 added a comment to D24265: support global edit mode.

This works very well now except for the vertical desktop toolbox. I don't think being able to have a vertical toolbar is practical, you can't really read the button labels and it's also glitching around when switching between horizontal and vertical mode. I think just having a horizontal toolbox that can be moved anywhere on the screen would be the best solution.

GB_2 added a comment to T10891: Breeze theme evolution.

I was looking into Breeze panel & widget shadows. One complain that I sometimes hear, and I agree with it, is that the shadows are too dark and narrow, it almost looks like an outline. Other themes and OSs often use more sparse and lighter shadows. It's really important to be able to distinguish widgets and white windows, but such a strong shadow is not needed. I tweaked the SVG to show what I mean:

On the center, there is Breeze right now.
On the left there is shadow a bit more sparse and lighter.
On the right, there's a bit less sparse shadow with a bit more transparent background (personal favourite).

Top is widget to background image, bottom widget to white(-ish) window to show the contrast.

Would you keep edit mode active when the focus goes to another app? I'm very hesitant about that and don't really like the concept...

GB_2 added a comment to D24265: support global edit mode.

I would tend to agree. If we feel that it's too difficult to exit this mode, maybe we should make it more obvious, like changing the X button in the toolbox to a toolbutton with the "finish editing" text.

GB_2 added a comment to T11746: Make it possible to only apply certain parts of a Global Theme.

So the problem is:

One can choose a lookandfeel which might have a colour, but you can also easily distribute and choose just a colour preset.

But when it comes to plasma layout, you can only distribute and choose a layout inside this data structure and UI which is designed for global grouping of things.

Which is why GB2 says we need a second KCM to make it consistent.

It has some sound logic, except I don't think it needs to be a KCM given regular editing and choosing isn't in a KCM. It'd be better attached to where the plasma editing UI is, in the toolbox.
