Hi Rafael, Michel,

Right, let's punt this option for now – not that we just add another tab
overnight. This needs design, I guess. (Also, I don't quite understand
your toolbar popup idea … you better illustrate it.)

The current implementation of search is so bizarre :
Why not insert the search field in the main toolbar ?

There are actually two counter-points I can immediately think of (we
actually discussed this in the design chat before):

  * it would not look good together with the Cogwheel menu, because that
    is largely unrelated to search – so we'd need a big placeholder to
    separate these items
  * it would increase the minimum necessary width for the dialogue, so
    it would look more crammed

Why you think its bizarre?? Most applications, hide the search bar by
default Ex: Nautilus, Firefox, i think it looks out of place inside the

Most Gnome software does it like this, many mobile application do this
(often out of screen space concerns). But especially Mac OS software has
been placing the search bar at the end of the toolbar. I can see where
both of you are coming from. :)

And another requests :
       * in the "breadcrumb" (when you are in a folder)
add some ">" between part of path or a visual element that clearly
indicates that it is a breadcrumb.
Is something similar to nautilus acceptable, using buttons and setting the
breadcrumb outside the view window??? Taking into account that we support
browsing deep hierarchies of folders in remote repositories.

Re: Michel – yes, that is actually already among our design bugs.

Re: Rafael – yes, a path bar like in [1] or [2] would be great. BUT, I
don't think it would work very well with LibO (or rather, VCL) right
So, I'd rather it looks like a simple breadcrumbs bar on a website [3].
It will be ugly, but at least the function is clear.
(Better ideas welcome.)

      * when you select a template (single clic), the search icon and
gear icon are hidden. Why ?

This is fixed on master. (Actually, I brought up the same issue in my
first mail in this thread.)
