mmustac added a comment to T9830: Application Menubar states and usability.

Personally I like the approach dolphin uses right now. I am no friend of having a global menu nor I like to have another button cluttering my title bar but the worst case would be to have the complete menubar shown in dolphin just becuase the other options does not suit me. I think it is a good idea to keeps the things clean and simple and this is was dolphin does. Instead of proposing to remove this feature just because is it not following the other applications we maybe could think the way around and implement such simpler menu structures inside the applications.

I would also suggest do just color the icon, maybe in green when its mounted ? But would only work for symbolic isons.
There is also a bug report to show an eject symbol right next to mounted disks, maybe if we could achieve this, it would make this icon changes obsolete ?

Personally I like it more without the separators but except of that the top-margin of the first element seems to be only 6px while the margin to the underneath elements is about 12px. I think we should use the same margin here to have a consistent look.

mmustac added a comment to D13474: Remove "Use Default Location" button in settings window.

Personally I had never used this buttons since I am a happy dolphin user but maybe becuase my default location is and will stay my home directory.
Regarding your question: The reason will be to just reset the location field. When someone changed the view settings underneath and clicks on the default button these settings will also get lost even this was not intended.
For me it would not hurt to remove both like Mark proposed. On the other hand people are always complaining when Gnome removes somtheing ... well I am not sure and can't speak for all users out there just wanted to share my point of view.

I would not close the bug yet. Unfortunately I am busy at the moment so I can't tell you when I will find to take a deeper look at the main problem from the bug:
Although we have support for the template directory now, it is still very difficult to display your own templates in the menu. At least I will try to solve this problem without breaking some of those bugfixes which disabled this feature in the past.

mmustac added a comment to D11483: [WIP] Make some properties searchable.

To jump into the little offtopic disccusion here. When it comes to edit tags and meta data I would prefer to just click on the label in the info panel and the label switches to an editline, where I can make my changes (or cancel with ESC) which would be saved when the focus changes.
This approach would look much sleeker and would be quite faster too but would then require another aproach for searching ... But back to topic, I really love your idea to make the infos baloo already has stored searchable great feature and improvement to find your files :-D

I don't know if KDE is allowed to do that but I would propse to make the logos even smaller by adding all 6 of them into one row and move them down in the page hierarchy because they are not that much important and would also fit better into the footer section with the bold heading, see attachted screenshots. I also removed (or reduced) some margings and padding to achieve a more compact look.

mmustac added a comment to D11569: Improve consistency of "Open With" UI by always showing top app inline.

I have two questions regarding this "open with" topic.
Is the displayed app the one which is also set as default for this file type or the first alternative (2nd app) ? If it's the default one why should someone make a right click on a file to open it with his/her default app instead of making a single/double click on it?
The second point: Shouldn't the "Open with" stuff be at the very beginning of the menu when we have a file selected for quick access? (1. opening, 2. create new files (for folders), 3. direct file operations, 4. additional file operations, 5. everything else)

While I think this could be useful (never used vi) your patch breaks the selection of files.
For example I created a bunch of files, each one starts with one letter from the alphabet and now I want to jump to "h.txt" so I press the letter h on my keyboard and it jumpes up instead of selecting the file which is bad.

When I started using Plasma I was really confused about the single click feature (I know where to change it) but I took this challenge and now I just don't want to go back anymore even I use Windows on the other hand with the double click enabled. I can conform the mentioned issue above regarding the multi selection in the file open dialog. I know to press Ctrl or Shift and slect more than one file but it's just not so discoverable. On Windows I love the option which display additional checkboxes to select multiple files.

I liked Breeze because of its light and easy concept, get rid of too many lines, keep only the ones which make sense or are totally necessary, this feeling gets lost here for me so that Breeze would slowly increase into a Storm (little overstated I know) Even when this change should happen, I would vote for an opt-in feature so that the default keeps clean.

mmustac added a comment to D10246: Toggle search and filter bar.

Okay I don't know what to do now. I wanted to add a new setting to dolphins general settings menu -> no problem at all.
Then I wanted to extend the find() and showfilterbar() function with an optional parameter so that I would be able to set them active then the shortcut was used (and the option off which would be the default) or toggle them when the button in the toolbar or menu was clicked.
First I tried to extend the connect() call with this parameter but I noticed that this is not so easy possible and then I tought "Is this the right way at all? This will not help at all because the signal will be forwarded anyway if the shortcut was pressed or the button was clicked ..."
My next idea was to make a new Action out of it but I don't want to have two actions in the menus and furthermore the shortcut could only handle one of it which would be really weird and confusing.
And so I am sticked and searching for a way to find out if the call from find() or showfilterbar() was made trough a button or the shortcut to make this different behavior possible. Any ideas?

Okay I can imagine ehy it can be a privacy issue but then it would mean thaht the the background itself is one. So lets say I am sitting with my notebook on some public place like the airport und someone looks over my shoulder then he other peobple walking by can see my wallpaper too (if there are no maximized windows of course).
So privacy issue = yes but not only a problem of the login/lock-screen.

I know this has nothing to do with this patch - maybe I should file a bug for this ? - anyway I wanted to share my thoughts after reading Mark's position and I think he's right. We should not put everything into the places panel nor should it be a sperate panel ... sound weird ? Well ... I like the idea of having different panels for different working scenarios but the static job they were created for is not ideal, altough we can hide groups from the panel now. My idea is to be able to add one ore more panels which would be just a container which then can be filled with different views / models ? (Like toolbars) So for example I can create a panel by my own, give it a name and customize it to show a list of tags and shortcuts for my saved searches for example. Then another panel could contain my device list and the default places section and a third one to contain the directory tree. That way I would be able to switch very quick between them, don't need to scroll or reconfigure my panel over and over again. Maybe someone can follow me and what I am trying to describe. Dolphin then could offer some preconfigured panels by default but let the users all possibilities to customize it wahtever they like. Easy by default, powerfull when needed.

Another thing that would be great: If we could click on the labels / buttons and they would switch to an editline where we could enter a value by our own and the pandel would change according. Some people - like me - like their panels pixel perfect specially when you have three monitors and want the same size on all three of them.
