Re: Modern Web UI: Like it or loathe it?

Loathe it. Anything from the past 15 years described as "modern" just plain sucks. :!: :? :!: So I am not alone. Maybe, for me, “loathing” is a bit exaggerated. But the legacy versions of many websites looked more desktop-like. I miss the skeumorphistic design of the past. The modern design trend s...

Gratitude.

I do not know whether the following post belongs here, but in past, I have rather posted criticism into the forums. It was constructive criticism about things such as the missing ability to scroll after clicking the middle mouse button and the mid-screen volume indicater that is not as good as the o...

Another notice

Windows has separate file path and filename bars. The latter can be used for filtering files using wildcards. Example: M*.og* does list all files starting with M* and ends with .og*, examples: Mike Perry — The Ocean.ogg Me at the zoo.ogv Additionally, Windows also allows hiding the file view and onl...

The other pathbar can be accessed in the Gtk file chooser/saver by using Ctrl+L over the window.

Thanks. Sorry for posting before reading this, which already mentions CTRL+L.

Keyboard shortcut.

Hello.

I just tried out F6 and Ctrl+L, which are common browser keyboard combinations and work on Windows Explorer as well.

Ctrl+L gives one a blanked path bar on the file selection/saving dialogue. Not ideal, but still great. :mrgreen:

File saving dialogue has no path bar. (feature suggestion)

The file saving dialogue in Windows has a path bar. Also the folder selector has one. There are also the inferior types of file/path selector in Windows, which only shows the tree menu, however. But the file saving dialogue in Linux also has no path bar for navigation. In some occasions, the file na...

Alt+Tab switcher does not allow clicking or scrolling.

Windows and Linux Mint cinnamon allow clicking onto the miniature windows on the Alt+Tab recent task switcher.

They also allow scrolling sideways using mouse wheels.

Why does Mate lack this fundamental functionality, like WIndows 2000 does?

Re: Panel flaws.

carefully poke around with your cursor, there definitely is a "sweet spot" that you can grab.

Re: Feature suggestion for pre-installed file managers: Also show file size in bytes.

I would like the pre-installed Linux file managers such as Caja, Nemo, Thunar, Natolious to show not just the human readable size (e.g. 14,8 GB), but also the exact number of bytes (e.g. 29719462841 B).

Inferior file property viewer.

In Nemo file manager, the file property viewer has disadvantages: * No exact file size written next to human readable format. (If the argument for missing that feature is "who needs that?", then consider getting employed at Apple. They desperately seek for people like Hyun Yeul Lee). * File renames ...

El Captain and Windows (Ctrl circle can be enabled in mouse settings) both have the ability to highlight the mouse to find it again more easily, and Windows also allows the mouse pointer to have a negative colour.

Is the same effect possible on Linux?
