Application Dashboard in Plasma initially shows recent applications by default (which makes a ton of sense!).

Don't worry: After many years working as a usability consultant and UX designer, I know that I have to distinguish between my own needs and user needs.

colomar added a comment to D7905: Remove launch feature from hamburger button and restore to the toolbar.

The hamburger menu was my suggestion so I should probably say something about it - for me the "launch" option is completely meaningless fluff. Another button to nothing. That being said, if this is something critical in normal usage then it should be in there - and as we have no chance to do a proper test of it doing what everyone else is doing might be preferred.

Why don't we simply copy the Firefox dialog?
Firefox has a big userbase and with the default settings, the vast majority of users will see this dialog at some point. Therefore if their wording was problematic, it's very likely someone would have flamed them for it.
So I'd consider their dialog "real-world tested".

The answer to that is share.kde.org (our Nextcloud installation).

Okay, personal opinion on why split buttons are among the most horrible things related to UX:
(And whilst some of these points might not apply to this very specific use case here: they will elsewhere, and once one component users this button, others will too, see e.g. spectacle)

  • They are very prone to accidental clicks. If you want to click the (little) arrow but hit the button instead, worst case you get an undoable, destructive action. This gets a lot worse with touch.

Just as well or as badly as a regular "Open" button. If in this scenario you hide the Open button because it has no valid target, then of course there would be no split Open button, either.

So, how can I access the menu options for the invidiaual files, here?

A file manager has a menu bar, however, so the context menu is never the only means to execute an action.

Dolphin does not by default. I don't see an "Open" or "Open With" action anywhere in its menus, neither the file actions (compress, activities, send to, etc).

I agree that what Android does makes a lot of sense. What they have is

  • a permanent icon in the top bar for each application that still has an open notification - basically an SNI, minus the direct interactivity (which makes sense given that tiny icons are not much fun to interact with on a touchscreen)
  • a drawer that shows all notifications that are still valid (plus the same on the lockscreen if enabled)

That doesn't change the fact that the behavior of clicking the popup itself would change in an unpredictable way. One time it's close and other times it's execute and there's no visual way of telling when it will do what. That's the actual problem.

Same thing: the framework giving access to this feature doesn't mean your app has to use it. Even more: it doesn't even change the behaviour in Plasma! In Plasma the default action will still appear as a button unless we change the plasmoid. This will, however, make it possible to use this feature on desktops that do support default actions.

Yes, that is certainly a downside. One idea could be to move it into a submenu if there are more than X entries (though I'm not sure yet which number to choose). The downside of that would be that people who often add and remove places might get confused by the context menus jumping between submenu and no submenu

colomar added a comment to D3790: RFC: [Lock Screen] Indicate keyboard layout when unlocking failed.

We always have to keep in mind that usind multiple layouts is an advanced feature used by a minority of users. Therefore, as long as a feature only becomes active when there are multiple layouts (and in this case only when multiple layouts are used _and_ the login failed), we do not need to worry too much about UI clutter.
For that reason, I don't see mich of an issue with the patch.

colomar added a comment to D3602: Cycle between windows of the same desktop on switch.

Sorry for not replying earlier.
While this proposed behavior might indeed not be expected by everyone, this is not really a problem: Those who would not expect the wrap-around behavior would not expect anything to happen at all, and therefore not even press the shortcut if they are at the left-/rightmost window. If they do press it anyway (maybe by accident), they might be surprised at first, but it will be easy to them to get back to where they were before, and then they can still decide whether or not they want to use the shortcut in such situations in the future.
So, long story short: The benefits clearly outweigh the risks here, so +1 for the patch from the usability side.

There is nothing that speaks against offering this context menu. However, all the actions in the context menu must be available in the main UI as well. Due to discoverability reasons, context menus must never be the only way to access an action.
So, this patch is good to go, but there needs to be a way to do these things without the context menu as well.

On the other hand, we could open in the overlay mode for the single connected display when there's only one screen. When another screen gets attached, we remove the overlay and show the overview with positioning.

I've updated the main mock.
Changes:

  • Disabled displays are now in a separate box. Rationale: A disabled screen cannot ever be part of the screen setup anyway
  • Rotation is now done via rotate left/right buttons
  • Setting Primary display is done via positioning it in a box in the center. Rationale is that in most cases, the primary display will be in the center of the physical setup as well. Of course one can decide to e.g. only put further screens to the right of the primary screen if one does not want the center screen to be the primary one

Perhaps the best is to show all resolutions, pick the max refresh rate for a given resolution (the current "auto" setting), but warn the user that this mode has a low refresh rate and advise to pick a lower res with a higher refresh rate? This would allow users to shoot themselves in the foot, but makes it a bit more intuitive to pick what's sensible for the eyes.

colomar added a comment to M71: Display KCM Redesign.

You say it matches the mental model, but I don't think that's actually the case: you normally drag the screens in the KCM to match how they're on your desk, not "create a large virtual display". To me, the fact that I could even put displays on top of each other wasn't evident until I fixed bugs where this case happened.

Sep 19 2016, 1:38 PM · Plasma, Plasma: Design
colomar added a comment to M71: Display KCM Redesign.

On the top of resolution vs. refresh: Yes, there's a clear case where this matters. Graphics cards support a maximum resolution at a specific refresh rate. If you lower the refresh rate, you can get higher resolutions (and sore eyes), if you decrease resolution (possibly below the display's native res), you can get higher refresh rates. They're really inter-dependent. (Think of the product of number of pixels and refresh rate, that's the maximum bandwidth the graphics card can push to the display.)

colomar added a comment to M71: Display KCM Redesign.

As to scaling the kscreen kcm ui live while dragging ... I'm not so sure about it. It does sound neat, but it also bears the risk of UI bits falling outside of the screen (and thus input area), window being repositioned (if we choose to do so), and at the very least the slider control slipping away under the mouse. Sounds like a nice idea in theory, but it has so many problems attached to it, I'm not sure we want to go down that route.

I've just asked the other VDG members for their take on the font size.
Since this is not a big issue either way, the patch is fine to go in anyway.
If the VDG decides we'd like the font to be smaller, it would be nice if it could be changed in another patch.

Because that's an idea Martin and I had a while ago iirc. And also I don't see how we could make this one scrolling page, since it's a QML thing with a ScrollView embedded in a widget environment.

colomar added a comment to D2580: possible to use OverlaySheet with ListView.

There is always still the possibility to use one of the Action Buttons as a close button (as shown in the Gallery) if it gets too long to easily swipe away.
