manueljlin added a comment to T12192: Tweak SimpleMenu layout and replace Kickoff.

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?

manueljlin added a comment to D25728: [Applet Configuration] Don't draw a full-on separator between the titlebar and window.

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.

@mart, I think the mockups on the right are actually the A-Z list (notice where the separators are placed). I think @manueljlin just forgot to highlight the A-Z tab and hide or change the categories.

Yeah, oops

manueljlin added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.

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?

manueljlin added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.

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?

I agree. SimpleMenu + shutdown, restart, log off icons with labels + username with the user picture should be the way to go then, right?

manueljlin added a comment to T9041: New "Home" tab for Kickoff.

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?

the second one is good, but let's use a real search field in the toolbar, not a fake invisible borderless one. :)
Also maybe the bottom bar with the power/session buttons should span the full width of the window.

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

manueljlin added a comment to T9041: New "Home" tab for Kickoff.

maybe this approach is better?
btw, i'm uploading this from my phone, it might be a bit compressed

alternating stripey backgrounds colors are only used for multi-column lists, because they help you visually align the data for a particular item in the other columns. For single-column lists, we don't need to use alternating background colors.

also, should the tabs have the line over the text like the other mockups or over the text like D25334?

Like in D25334. Thanks!

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)

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

On a related note, is it possible to also make the header/title font size smaller, matching the other text close to buttons? Right now, pretty much all the headers across Plasma/Breeze look very overbearing due to how big they are. It's like they want you to look at them more than the contents of the window.

That's totally awesome IMO. I love the way you re-used the color hierarchy that we use in apps (darker window bg color + view bg color). Could we have mockups made in that style for all the other tray popups you already did?

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

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)
for example:
