Desktop icons are inconsistent

The spaces between icons are inconsistent. This problem is present in 5.12 and
in many older versions too. See the attachment. Please fix it for we have to
edit FolderView.qml every time when update is being issued.

What's happening is that the tallest icon is determining the grid size for all
the others. In fact, your complaint is that the grid is too *consistent*!

Not sure what we could do about this. Can you attach your edited FolderView.qml
file as well as a screenshot for how it looks *when there are multiple columns
of icons*?

Someone has renamed my bug! I named it "Desktop icon spaces are inconsistent".
I repeat - the spaces are inconsistent no matter which icon is first.

To receive consistent folder spaces In FolderView.qml I edit the following
lines:

var iconWidth = iconSize + (6 * units.largeSpacing) + (0 * units.smallSpacing);

and

var iconHeight = iconSize + (theme.mSize(theme.defaultFont).height *
plasmoid.configuration.textLines) + (0 * units.smallSpacing);

The inconsistent effect is with the default settings of FolderView.qml. When I
edit it the spaces are correct. See the screenshot below:

The problem is not only on my installation. I tried brand new installation
where the inconsistent effect is also present.

Does it still look good if you rename any of those icons to have a title long
enough to wrap onto the next row?

You can achieve the same effect by simply setting text lines to 1.

Where? In FolderView.qml? No if I set it to 1, the icons gets very near to the
left side.

The problem isn't the icon's names. It's ridiculous to fill two rolls of every
icon on the desktop to receive consistency. Plasma is the only one DE with such
problems.

Install Plasma5 and set different types of icons on the desktop and you'll have
the same effect. It's a bug and I don't understand why my bug is with "Invalid"
status.

Not in the QML. In the config dialog on the "Icons" page.

Ok, the bug it isn't for how we arrange icons on the desktop. The bug is for
inconsistent spaces between icons on the desktop. You don't need to set
something - brand new installation->set some different types of icons->the bug
is there. I send my edited desktop screenshot only for reference how shoud it
be. The default behaviour is in attachment.

It's not inconsistent. The default is two lines of text, which means every icon
is given the space for two lines of text (even if there's only one line to
display) to make it consistent. If you want a consistent single-line grid
instead, you change the number of text lines.

Ok, I'll try but it's ridiculous such setting to destroy whole desktop...
