I think the reasoning is well thought and laid out by Heiko. the
resizability doesn't seem to be a big problem for me. Except if the
floating widget looks extremely small in HiDpi displays? (can't test)

Just one question though: where does the floating Sidebar fit into this? I
tried to resize other floating widgets and couldn't, but I can resize the
floating Sidebar. And I could see why resizing it could be useful (as
opposed to the other floating widgets).

The floating widget is like a toolwindow, similar to compose a message.
And I'm very happy that an accidental press of escape doesn't close this
dialog (using Thunderbird as well). Resizability is permitted for dialogs
in LibreOffice, though I dont find the guideline anymore (wait, it was a
discussion on the mailing list [1]), in order to keep the content at place.

maybe other messages too

First of all, thanks for sharing the guidelines Heiko.

I'm pretty agree about all except for the usage of escape. When I teach
computer, I always explain that escape is used inside the window to close
floating window, menu and dialog. For example, on Thunderbird, escape could
close a message window or on LibreOffice 6.0 when I open the save dialog, I
could close it with escape.

IMO, we should let floating windows resizable. I don't understand what
is the problem.

Best regards,
