manueljlin added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.
  • While I understand that the gray neutral color in the header is likely used for mockups, this really should be the default KDE look/feel. It makes everything appear to tie together. Right now, dolphin looks a bit awkward in it's default form. The transition from the titlebar to the toolbar is almost jarring, particularly when either/or can be used to move the window.

Yep, that's the idea! See T10201. It probably needs to be updated with new mockups. @manueljlin, would you like to have a go?

These get reused in plasma mobile too (as far as I know) so we have to be extra careful with changes like these, especially size and click/tap targets. Also don't know about hiding stuff behind another click w10-style.

Looking at the screenshots, UI wise it's looking good already, only that the checkbox seems too big (should be the same size as the radio button, 16px) and there's a 5px sized padding after the divider that cuts off part of the Internal Microphone button and volume slider earlier than it's supposed to

manueljlin updated subscribers of T12434: Kaidan UI tweaks.

What do you think about these changes?

  • Removing the dividers between the accounts
  • The recent documents/recent apps sections have too many lines, making it feel cramped. Maybe remove the horizontal lines in the lists and just keep the vertical line separating the recent documents section from the recent apps section

That's why the SimpleMenu design mockups doesn't have any dividers and the Kaidan one from T12420 didn't have dividers either

Some notes while I start working on implementation:

  • Currently I'm planning to have a "Recent" section on both the Apps and Files tabs, though it's not included in the mockups.

That makes sense

  • I'm not sure what the status of the discussion is on what should be shown as icons and what as lists. My current plan is to default everything in "Apps" to icons except "All Applications" as list, default everything in "Files" to list, and have a context menu action to switch in every view that just remembers the choice. Search results are a list, too.

Nice, you can add the apps' descriptions and align them like this so it doesn't have unused space:

  • I kind of still like the pagination that the original Simple Menu does. I'm considering having lists be vertically scrollable, but use the pages for the icon views.

Hmm, I don't know if it should be different for both the vertical list and the icon grid

  • It's quite tricky to sort out what should be hover-activated and what should be click-activated in this UI design. I'm thinking the Apps and Files tabs need to be click-activated, hover there would be incredibly annoying.

Yup

Also, when the search bar is focused and the user has searched for something that has many options, pressing the left/right keys should change the category.
For example, in the lower right corner of every mockup there are multiple categories displayed (Applications/Pictures/Documents) so pressing right would directly select accesories-character-map.svg because it's the first option in the Pictures category.

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

Dec 4 2019, 10:58 PM · Plasma
manueljlin added a comment to D25728: [Applet Configuration] Don't draw a full-on separator between the titlebar and window.

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. The divider needs to be inside the application itself to make this possible, instead of in the titlebar.
