colomar added a comment to D8773: Improve discoverability of drag-and-drop of toolbar actions.

What I would like to see is that when you open the "Edit Toolbar" dialog that you then can drag around tool bar buttons and drag them from and to the dialog, like Firefox does it and how @colomar suggested. Given you can already re-arrange toolbar buttons whilst said dialog is open, what needs to be added is the ability to drag those from and to the dialog.

Why don't we do this the way Firefox does it: Have a menu entry that puts the whole UI in config mode.
That works far better then trying to make each individual config feature discoverable.

Yes, it'd be nice to see them finally merging, we're late in the discussion phase now. Also as a bonus, it would be awesome if the consolidated proposal could contain aspects coming from the talk we held with David Faure this year about the developer story. That'd make for a very strong one then, and would probably add at least David's name in the list of people willing to put work into it. ;-)

So, what do we do with this proposal and https://phabricator.kde.org/T7116 now? They are so similar that it really makes little sense from my perspective to keep them separated.
Can @ngraham and @neofytosk maybe see how to proceed with merging them into one which contains all aspects of both?
Otherwise votes would end up split between the two, effectively reducing the chance for either of them to be selected.

I'm happy that there is a lot of discussion happening here, but maybe the discussion about annotations in Okular is getting a bit too much into detail for this point in the process.
So let's maybe summarize it for now as "There are potentially some issues with compatibility of Okular annotations, so if this goal gets selected, this could be one of the things we look into, together with academic / research users.

A venn diagram of "People who care about privacy" and "people who buy and use smart home devices" doesn't have a lot overlap, I fear.

If you buy a device that monitors everything about your behavior, house, and life, haven't you already lost the battle by deciding that you don't really care about your privacy? I don't see how we can salvage this situation for people who aren't very interested in the concept. We might want them to care about privacy, but if they did, that would have an always listening spy gizmo in their house in the first place.

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".

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

Great improvements!
Is the desktop / Activity only shown if

  • there are multiple ones and
  • the task manager shows tasks from different ones?

+1 for the patch (I don't think the icon is close enough to the login button to be problematic)

+1, definitely looks better to me (and Jens will love any killed animation, anyway ;) )

Really nice!
The single thumbnail might be a bit too large, as having large notification windows pop up could be irritating. Maybe half the size would be big enough?

I haven't had the chance to play with it and I think we should still have a plan B if we get negative feedback on it during beta tests, but the concept as it is described in the latest comments makes sense to me.
