Bug ID: 390400
Summary: Add option to change the effect for clicking grouped
icons
Product: plasmashell
Version: master
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: wishlist
Priority: NOR
Component: Icons-only Task Manager
Assignee: ***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@gmail.com
CC: plasma-***@kde.org
Target Milestone: 1.0

In the icons-only task manager, if I have multiple instances of an application
running, when I click the icon, I get to an effect similar to the 'Present
windows', but only with the current application's windows.

I find a lot more convenient the effect that I get instead when leaving the
mouse (without clicking) on the icon, which shows up some small window previews
right above the icon, as it takes fewer mouse movements to select the window I
want.

Would be nice if we had the option to change the action for clicking the icons
when there are multiple instances running to the same small previews above the
icon as when hovering the mouse over without clicking.

If you can already move over an item and not click, what's the advantage of
having the setting?

The advantage is speed by not having to wait for the effect to show or to
reappear if I move the mouse outside the previews and they disappear.

Related request for alternative click behavior:

Maybe we should just give in and allow the click effect/behavior to be
user-selectable.
