Bug ID: 342826
Summary: add possibility to duplicate panel to other screens
Product: plasma
Version: unspecified
Platform: openSUSE RPMs
OS: Linux
Severity: wishlist
Priority: NOR
Component: panel
Assignee: plasma-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@gmail.com

I often use KDE with different display setups. Currently I have to add/remove
separate panel to the newly (dis)connected display every time.
It would be the easiest if there was possibility to just duplicate the current
panel to other screens (even greater if it was possible to choose the screens).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect new screen to computer

Actual Results:
New screen is configured without any panels.

Expected Results:
New screen has automatically the same panel that has been set to be duplicated
on other screens.

If the panel is maximized, maximize the duplicate instance of the panel too; if
its size is set manually then reduce its size if it does not fit the new
screen, otherwise use the configured size.

Widgets should be also aware of the screens, eg. Task Manager's setting "Only
show tasks from the current screen".

--- Comment #1 from Nate Graham <***@kde.org> ---

This feature request was filed for KDE Plasma 4, which reached end-of-support
status in August 2015. KDE Plasma 5's desktop shell has been almost completely
rewritten for better performance and usability, so it is likely that this
feature request is already implemented in Plasma 5, or is no longer applicable.

Accordingly, we hope you understand why we must close this feature request. If
the requested feature is still desired but not implemented in KDE Plasma 5.12
or later, please feel free to open a new ticket in the "plasmashell" product
after reading https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/Bug_Reporting

If you would like to get involved in KDE's bug triaging effort so that future
mass bug closes like this are less likely, please read

Thanks for your understanding!
