Maybe A - Z with an horizontal list could look like this, the only problem is where to put the favorites apps and files. Maybe at the top of the apps list could work?

I though that would just affect every app's titlebar without actually checking if the app has a toolbar, etc etc and just add/remove the divider everywhere and be done with it. However, if the app can actually send a hint to Kwin to make it hide or show the divider depending if it has a toolbar or not (or maybe through a window / app rule), then it's great
But that style of line / divider was going to be after the toolbars too, like kirigami apps, so removing it just would make that inconsistent later on. If it's possible, fixing the color scheme and making it configurable should probably be the way to go.

Yeah, the breadcrumbs shouldn't be squashed to fit, nor the icons.
Maybe making the current breadcrumbs part in dolphin be a regular toolbar part that you can add, remove or move to other toolbars might be another option, while also keeping good defaults. Should we talk about this here or T11663?
Hmm, yeah, I see what you mean... Maybe fixing the same size to both and not centering it to the view itself but to the toolbar might work when there are many icons. Does anyone know any other solution to this?
Like the bottom left mockup
The 4th one is just
Yeah, you might like the ones with the light blue bg, it's the one that most people from the VDG chat like

quite probably, for example, KvGnome does that

Added 16px icons in the categories part.
Should I just tag vdg, or plasma too?
I agree. SimpleMenu + shutdown, restart, log off icons with labels + username with the user picture should be the way to go then, right?

I tried to make it more Kickoff-like, while keeping the power buttons away from the panel and the search bar near to it (this also makes the username/power options as thick as the new other popups, so more consistency).
Re-added tabs as a way to see how to sort installed apps.

I would be in favor of that, but maybe keeping kickoff too just in case might be a good idea too?

at that point you might as well get rid of the tabs, and place the locations option somewhere else

maybe this approach is better?
btw, i'm uploading this from my phone, it might be a bit compressed
I've tried to make it follow the padding and space from T10470, and swapped the shut down, restart, log off buttons and the search bar around.
It's a bit taller and thinner than the current kickoff design in 5.17

that might fix some stuff but there are still icons with red parts like the audio volume (when volume at 0%, notifications (when silenced) and clipboard popups (delete icon)

:D now I only need to fix the audio volume tabs with the dark theme and a bit of the calendar (the alt part) that still uses bold header/title text

sorry for spamming updates

I don't know about putting the shutdown button and the rest so close to the start button and having the search menu up to the top... maybe swapped around would be better to be safe from accidental clicks
I hope this gets approved so T10470 doesn't look awkward with thin and dark shadows
Oh sorry, I'm new to this phab stuff hahaha
The latest versions are there, the ones that have the 4x and 1x exports

Left (this design) Right (old design, ignore the theme)
the font size was already quite reduced, and if you compare it to the size of the ones right now (make it 4x smaller and put them side by side or go to the figma link and set it to 115%) it's pretty noticeable. Also, kirigami consistency

Edit: audio volume now on main post

Since Plasma's logo has this triangle-like shape (>) that can mean greater/bigger than something, it can probably be inverted to mean smaller than regular plasma (so it fits with the Nano name)
