Your change to replace GtkMenu does not appear to be a feature, as it provides nothing new to the Sugar user experience.  It is a minor change to the user experience, substituting a modal dialog for a submenu.  Has this change passed through the design team on sugar-devel@? --[[User:Quozl|Quozl]] ([[User talk:Quozl|talk]]) 19:51, 9 August 2015 (EDT)

Wanted: global hotkeys while menu shown

One of the features lost in the transition to 0.98 was use of the hotkeys while a menu palette was displayed, especially in the home, list, or journal views.

Test case: verify F1 and F3 keys work, move mouse over central icon, pause until palette is shown, verify F1 and F3 keys work; they should dismiss the palette and switch view.

Please consider restoring this lost feature. --Quozl (talk) 18:59, 24 May 2015 (EDT)

Wanted: escape key to dismiss menus

There is no accelerator for dismissing Sugar menus. Other platforms provide escape for this. Please consider adding escape as an accelerator. --Quozl (talk) 19:03, 24 May 2015 (EDT)

It is possible to fix this right now. See sugar-toolkit-gtk3 pull request 223 --Quozl (talk) 23:03, 24 May 2015 (EDT)

Not a feature, where is design change discussion?

Your change to replace GtkMenu does not appear to be a feature, as it provides nothing new to the Sugar user experience. It is a minor change to the user experience, substituting a modal dialog for a submenu. Has this change passed through the design team on sugar-devel@? --Quozl (talk) 19:51, 9 August 2015 (EDT)
