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)

Is that specific to GtkMenu palettes? SAMdroid (talk) 02:34, 25 May 2015 (EDT)
Don't know. Check the code? I've searched for GtkMenu and not found it in sugar and sugar-toolkit-gtk3 repositories, except as a comment. --Quozl (talk) 04:26, 25 May 2015 (EDT)
Ok, I tested and it is not specific to GtkMenu based palettes, maybe this is a seperate fix?
BTW, GtkMenu is the C way of saying it and therefore what the Gtk docs use, python code would use Gtk.Menu SAMdroid (talk) 05:21, 25 May 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. Best to not mention GtkMenu then, since the code is python. Edited page. --Quozl (talk) 23:50, 25 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)
