andreaska added a comment to D7440: Turn on Dolphin icon previews by default.

update the previewer (speed) is always a good idea. I always didn't understand that there is an preview icon in the main toolbar but by default all previews are turned off via the settings so after a fresh installation open dolphin click on preview you didn't get a preview. that's strange, because when the user want to see the file preview the user should get it. In addition some modules aren't in the default installation (e.g. video and pdf) so you get first not what you want (no preview when click on preview) and second when you are in the settings you see that there isn't a preview for videos and pdf available.

I would have this 3 buttons instead of bottom left (additional toolbar) to the top toolbar (as there is already an toolbar for the apps). as less different UI elements as possible. In addition you don't have that much actions in the main top toolbar in a PIM suite.

so when you are interested into some facelift, ping the VDG. As you saw in the two quick mockups it's not another application is't kontact you have there the folder view OR a panel view so simple and advanced and you have the conversation view which you already show on your screenshot only without show the header for each conversation mail.

the e-mail view (detail view) if fine for me maybe you can add an inline delte, reply, forward, ... action than you can remove the toolbar.

andreaska added a comment to T6267: New systemsettings UI.

I would focus instead of the SubSections at the single KCM. If you select first the main group and than show all KCM's the KCM's aren't that hidden as in the old layout. As you can see in the screenshot there are 10 - 15 KCM's per Main Section.

About the links. I like them. Why you dont have a donate section on the webpage? Something like a tutorial page where you link at the start screen would be nice. However. Donate should be there or support where you have a website like libreoffice https://donate.libreoffice.org/ support via money or time.

andreaska added a comment to T812: Add image preview to effects.

Kube removes the preview, because it's useless to have a random color and a useless first letter. Group them would be a better way. Maybe have a gif preview of a transition or an icon like PowerPoint did it. I made some icons for libreoffice impress transitions and can support if needed.

andreaska added a comment to T2026: Systemsettings updating to VDG designs.

If we first select the main category we didn't need subcategories and I think the subcategories are the problem of the existing system cause most users know the kcm but not the subcategory. When we have 5 - 7 main categories than we have 10 - 15 kcm's in a list that's not a problem. nobody would have a problem to select first the main group (hardware, appearance, connectivity, ...) and than the user has the list of kcm's. in addition there is the main search and with the "sidebar" you can switch easy between the main groups.
