So are we officially abandoning the idea of moving the Breadbcrumbs/URL Navigator into the toolbar? Shall we close T11663?

That's not Dolphin, that's their Index file manager. Nonetheless, it does show that having the Breadbrumbs/URL navigator in the toolbar can in principle work. :)

Have you had a look at the KDE based distrubtion Nitrux? I just stumbled over the screenshots they posted in their announcemet about teaming up with Manjaro:

Sorry, we can't make this an option. Moving the navigator to the toolbar would require lots of changes to the code. We can't possibly maintain both implementations, it would be a nightmare.

I do not share the concern that the toolbar will be too crowded when the path is added. Looking at the mockups I feel like there is enough space left even if we keep the current labels as they are. The path becomes a relative one anyways when there isn't enough space which isn't terrible. When this change was discussed in the VDG chat half a year ago there was a consensus that it looked better and I am pretty sure users will be happy with this change as well.

Was this idea not good enough?
It doesn't take much away from those that use split view and it keeps that elegant style for those that don't care about split view at all.

ndavis added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.

I agree, quite nice.

I wonder if we should make the status bar span the entire bottom of the window, not just the view area. And maybe we should keep it with a gray background. That way there would be two gray bars at the top and bottom of the window anchoring everything in the middle.

What do you think?

kderich added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.

If we leave it where it is, what I'd like to do is make it more of a distinct element so that it doesn't blend into the toolbar like it does right now. I think @manueljlin had some mockups showing that which looked pretty good.

I agree with this. I also think we should integrate the search button with the breadcrumb rather than having it sit in the toolbar, completely detached from the part of the UI it affects.

It seems to me that moving the url navigator to the toolbar creates more problems than it solves, because of split views.

What for? Just to be similar to other filemanagers? How many of them have split views anyway?

kderich added a comment to T12308: Dolphin UI redesign.

I think there were a few ideas behind moving it to the toolbar:

  • Save a bit of vertical space
  • Fill empty space in the default toolbar
  • Looks better in general (IMO)

    Of course the drawbacks of this are:
  • By filling the toolbar's empty space, we can't add more things to it in the future or add text to the buttons (which research shows is better for usability)
  • The Breadcrumbs bar/URL navigator can get quite narrow for narrow window widths
  • Uncertainty regarding how to handle split views. Divide it into two? Use only one and have it reflect the URL of the active split view?

    Ultimately I think it's your call here.

I quite like how you can 'close the drawer' as such, to remove the unneeded information onscreen, after you got your playlist down. If that is going to be removed, i will not like it.

  1. Have the menu appear when pressing ALT and then disappear after being used, like in Windows.

If those ideas are implemented, Dolphin looks just like it does in these concepts layout-wise and Recent is placeable in the Places part as just "Recent" it'd be darn perfect.

Just an idea I'd love to see implemented:

  1. Have the fallback menu button if no menu is shown be an optional toolbar component that can be moved or removed
  2. Have the menu appear when pressing ALT and then disappear after being used, like in Windows.
