Each time you have proposed this i have pointed a script we have that gets the proper version from the cmake file.

The important thing is preserving the current ease in distinguishing active window from inactives (for all windows, not only Qt/KDE ones)

DWD is also very controversial and difficult to implement. Either way, this task is moving in a good direction, becoming more visually appealing for both sides, and way more feasable in the short term.
I also agree to use a subdle 90% opacity on the tools area as I stated before, but I'd prefer it to be applied either on all windows or only the active one. When applied only to inactive windows, it would be waay less noticeable and appealing.

OK, but I don't think that changing Breeze theme for QtWidgets is a good idea to solve an issue with the title bar, only KDE/Qt applications using QtWidgets would benefit of this. And since then Breeze theme for QtWidgets and Breeze window decoration will only make sense if used together.

ngraham added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

It looks great, but we're moving in the direction of making the titlebar have the same color as the toolbar+menubar below it, which means it can't be as dark as depicted in your screenshot or else it's a ton of darkness that would be very distracting. While this issue would be slightly alleviated with DWD, DWD doesn't exist, likely never will, and even if it did, putting more controls in a combined titlebar/toolbar is a huge can of worms that in my opinion generates more problems than it solves, so I wouldn't want to do it. For my thoughts on the subject, see https://pointieststick.com/2018/12/18/on-headerbars/ and https://pointieststick.com/2019/03/06/more-on-headerbars-rebuttals/.

What do you think about inactive window title bar matching Plasma panels theme (90% by default with blur)?

ngraham added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

Currently, Kvantum is able to use different colors for toolbars based on their location, so that is feasable. I think it should get the tools area color only when it's put on the top, and leavingi everything else, including statusbar, with the normal lighter gray. When the toolbar is on the sides or on the bottom, it should be part of the window, and not of the tools area.

One thing that should probably be considered is how to handle toolbars that are not at the top, but on the sides or the bottom of the window, as well as any combination of those. The possible cases seem to be quite tricky.

What do you think of: (opaque on the left, transparent on the right)

-snip-

TBH, I can't tell the difference between both sides.

It's subtle, but it looks a bit nicer. I feel like a bit less opacity would improve the effect.

Is there a consensus that the titlebars are not liked enough by the users, possibly because they appear to waste too much space while looking empty?

If so, I want to suggest this: Make the menubar titlebar button expandable, so the menubar can be shown inside the titlebar.

Are you suggesting this in addition or replacement of Nate's idea of tools area with the same color?

ngraham added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

That came off sounding kind of harsh, sorry. I don't hate blurry transparency, and I think a little bit can work when applied selectively and tastefully. But it has to be subtle, and it can't be underneath text that you're trying to read or else readability can suffer. For an example with our own implementation, see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=397851

Last week I had to install Windows (bad experience overall), and I took that as a chance to consider their choises on this matter. One thing that I noticed is that Windows is using its fluent (/transparent window) effect in many applications, and it's used as a way to help the user understand which one is the active window. When the window is no longer active, the window become opaque. I found it quite interesting to use:

Another option would be displaying a label "Menu" instead of the hamburger menu when the window is narrow and File Edit View... labels when there is enough space and dragging area

You have the menubar labels vertically centered, I would have them moved a little downwards.

For narrow windows:

  • it would stay a hamburger button,
  • or the menubar is cut off somewhere with a drop down button.

    The text in the menubar could be placed a bit downwards, to indicate that it belongs to the application, not the window system.

    Of course, this does not work for browsers which have no menubar by default.

The button active area already extend to the corner when window is maximized, so this makes sense. I even thought it works like that in normal window already heh.

However, what are the chances for misclick when resizing a window in the corner? Wouldn't be a problem?
