Bug ID: 389803
Summary: Improve Places category show/hide behavior: show/hide
when clicking on header
Product: dolphin
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Severity: wishlist
Priority: NOR
Component: panels: information
Assignee: dolphin-bugs-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@zoho.com

Created attachment 110311

How macOS Finder does it

We now have support for hiding and showing Places panel categories. Yay!
However, the UI for this is rather hidden: you have to right-click on the
header to hide it and its category, and then when you do, the entire
thing--including the header--disappears, so you can easily forget about it or
not even realize that there's anything hidden that can be shown!

I would recommend using a UI more similar to how the macOS Finder implements
this: when you click on a header, its content collapses, the but the header
remains, to show you that there's hidden content. It's quite slick.

Bonus: if we implement this, we can feasibly hide certain categories by default
to reduce clutter (like "Search for") without impairing usability or
discoverability because people can easily show it if they'd like.

Maybe also the categories can remember the state that the user left them in and
hide by default. I like this idea.

Yes, remembering is a must. We already have that, in fact. We just need to
improve the UI and the discoverability.
