|0011351||Scribus||User Interface||public||2013-01-07 08:26||2015-06-26 23:58|
|Platform||x86_64||OS||Linux||OS Version||OpenSUSE 12.1|
|Target Version||1.5.1||Fixed in Version||1.5.1svn|
|Summary||0011351: Icons for some actions are harder to use in 1.5.0svn|
|Description||Icon entries in the icon bar with a small arrow for additional options are harder to use in 1.5.0svn than in 1.4.x because the arrow is halfway covered by the icon. Thus, it's easy to miss the arrow with the mouse:|
-- Insert Shape
-- Insert Polygon
-- Insert Calligraphic Line

|You don't need to hit the arrow exactly, you only need to press and hold the mouse button to get to the options.|
|It's still less user-friendly than in 1.4.x.|
|Christoph, this change was made by Franz following a user request and i totally disagree with you.|
Jean, people disagreeing is nothing unusual.
The first problem I'm facing is I'm using an extremely fast multimedia computer that reacts hypersensitively to mouse clicks, so what I have to do is crawling slowly towards the Icon bar, move the mouse over the respective icon in the icon bar, pause and release the mouse, then press the left mouse button and hold it to get the options. Otherwise I'll end up with the default option.
There is another aspect, perhaps even more subtle, to this bug report. During the past two years I had to learn the hard way, i.e. in a hospital and in physiotherapy, to "listen to my muscles". In 1.4.x I can click on the drop-down-arrow and move over the options by simply moving the mouse. In 1.5svn I have to press the left mouse button a lot more and longer. This has to do with health-related ergonomics, and the behaviour of 1.5svn isn't exactly health-friendly or ergonomically. 1.4.x's is.
|These toolbar buttons with an arrow are created by Qt itself, so they are conform to the user interface. Even KDE applications are using it.|
OK, but could you explain to me why 1.4.x and 1.5.0svn are behaving differently when both are being compiled against the same Qt version?
I really didn't mean to start a fight over this issue, and I probably bought the wrong computer (advertised as a multimedia and gaming device), which means it may be too fast for DTP. However, I still think 1.4x is better in terms of ergonomics (read: health).
Feel free to close this bug if you think it's meaningless.

Wouldn't it be simply to highlight the smaller arrow better ?
With the new icon set on 1.5.1, Open, Polygon and Shape still obscure the arrow.
FYI I actually had no idea that the open icon had an arrow till now.
EDIT: added screenshot showing arrows pointing diagonally down at the bottom right corner of the icon button.
|r20196 adds customisable icons for the arrow so we can add contrast. Button usage on OSX seems just fine.|
Craig, looks way better now on OSX, thanks!
