Love it! I like how convenient the configure button is.
Just to provide perspective at what the rest of the industry is using, here is a search online:
What KCM are your comments about @broulik ?

Here are additional mockups for thought.
Fri, Apr 20
I can make more
Could the list be enclosed by a white field?
I would say remove search for images audio files and video and move them to the places location
I gave a +1 to the original idea because I feel that there isn't really much closeness that you can achieve with the open dialog. It is simple, straightforward. If we wanted to do a strict fitt's law follow, then each back and forth icon would be next to each of the folders and not in a toolbar. But we also have to see that there is stronger merit in organizing and looking for symmetry. Symmetry will sometimes help a user more than Fitt's guidelines. I say, let's keep the original request for change and then get user feedback.

Somewhat related, why does the Size header have a number of items listed and not the size in bytes for all the items inside the folder?
What would it look like if it was enabled by default? Screenshot?

I also vote for a little more vertical spacing. Maybe in similar ways to what Marco Martin did recently for spacing in System Settings.
True! So would this just be a desktop KCM?
That would be hard on mobile for sure. We would have to provide the fine tuning button in some other way. In the mockup, I followed what we currently have on this KCM. Maybe we could come up with a better solution for mobile?

Could it be possible, just to agree with the team, to have a small preview of a sample window showing the colors? Something like this:

Why not save the room on the right of the KCM and instead blur the actual image in the list? Move the controls closer to that list item? The arrangement looks off the way it shows in the screenshots.
When you can, can you share a screenshot of the progress? I am so excited to see this!
Fri, Apr 13
Can we also create another patch that can add more vertical spacing between the items and the top edge of the field?
Thu, Apr 12
Is there a way that the additional buttons are centered along the bottom edge of the preview?
Looks good to me!
Would it be hard to include a checkbox to the left of each list item that shows a selection when tapped?
Are we thinking that we want to change our Plasma defaults to fit a theme more like the one in Kubuntu? Is that what this conversation is about?
Tue, Apr 10
I am in fact, a little bit taken back by the fact that we have a two slider icon. The reason is because I have been told many times that we don't want to use sliders or toggles in the desktop. We are referencing something that doesn't exist in the Plasma desktop. I might suggest maybe using the gear icon for this. It probably feels more at home since it is also part of the KDE logo. Just wanted to provide another perspective.

I am all for reducing the time but maybe keep some lag to tackle the points already made in the ticket
Just to understand. Where does this need come from?
I like this idea! It is consistent with what most people will look to do by right clicking an item.
Fri, Apr 6
As you work through this, can you please also upload videos to understand the changes visually too?
Wed, Apr 4
I don't have any objections. Good work!
Tue, Apr 3
Can you please add a screenshot of what this will look like now after the patch?
Mon, Apr 2
I have had discussions around this before. I still feel that this doesn't have to be a default but can live with it. If the majority is for changing this default, I can contribute more to the discussion.

Can we just call all of those entries just "Recent" or "Recently Used" independent of when it happened? I feel that would be more clear without having to remove the feature.
I am not sure that I am catching the difference between before and after. Can you please provide screenshots of that? Just for comparison.

You mean a list that will only show the right hand side if there is an active connection?
Sat, Mar 24
I think it looks good although I agree that the width is too much. What is the character limit on the strings before using " ... " ?
Mar 23 2018
This may be different than this patch is intending to address. Let me know if that's the case. Another thing that adds more characters to the menus are the long names that our applications have.
Mar 22 2018
+1, ...and just for extra relevance, can the centered buttons have a shadow? A shadow on hover or something that brings attention to them and make them stand out?
+1 on this! Easy access to apps!
Would it look good also that if there were less handlers and they are presented in the same menu that it goes like this:

@andreask Would you be able to tune in to this?

I wanted to summarize our thoughts visually so far. I added a 4th idea of mine at the end of this image.\

What is there left to be done in this implementation? Are we close to shipping?
Mar 12 2018
Options are on the table. Now we need to move forward with this patch. Is there more discussion needed?
Or... we can follow the idea I have been meaning to make true and use something like a mouse hover with controls that appear on demand:
Do you feel we have to choose one or the other? Is there room for having both methods changing depending on the device they are on?
Seems pretty good!
We have discussed something like this before. My only worry with this implementation is that we have so much red on the screen that it becomes distracting. Not the fault of this patch, but I am wondering if there is a way that we can use a monochrome X button?
What will it look like now? Screenshot?
Mar 11 2018
What do you think of having the configure button have the blue highlight and be in the middle of the window instead of a border? This can help to make a more odd placement and make it stand out.
Mar 6 2018
I would use this as a guide
That seems pretty good to me. I would even make the title label bigger, so that it looks like a header.
I like this one! :D above
Not sure if it is within the scope of this patch but the spacing is uneven vertically between elements in the notification window. They need more space to breathe.
Number 2 seems like the best option. I would also make sure that there is a color difference between title label and sample text. That way it is easier to distinguish between list items. When all labels are the same color, you give equal importance to all elements.

Thanks so much for your work! As I am not a developer, as you progress with the patch, can you also please post screenshots? Just so I get where your work is going.
Thank you for this. This is what I thought was best. It is a method that many applications use. It is straightforward and quick. Is there a way that the list width can be dynamic so as to accommodate the name of the font family? Sometimes font families are very long. Also, I would suggest one of two ways to show the list:
