Show HUD above the application, not in the top left corner
The HUD is currently opening in the top left corner. While it seems coherent with the location of the dash, and the global menu, I still find this a bit annoying to have to move my eyes all the way up to this corner when I'm using a window in the bottom right corner of the screen. I'm using high res screens, 1920x1080 or higher. So for a small window, it's really a lot of eye movements (or even mouse movements).
As the HUD is an overlay, why should it appear necessarily in the top left corner ? Why not simply ABOVE the application ? The global menu is moved to the top bar to give more room for the application, ok, it makes sense. But why this menu should appear up there, except for some coherence with the Dash ?
And also, remember what is HUD, it's meant to show information on top of what you are looking at, right ? Not on a far far away corner ;) Unity is supposed to be very efficient, and fast to use. I love to use the dash, without having to move my hand on the mouse. I would be even more efficient with the HUD if I didn't have to move my eyes up and down all the time. Press ALT, type, select, without moving my hands from the keyboard, and my eyes from my work.
And if for coherence reasons, you want to keep it up there, an option to display the dash centered on the desktop / HUD centered on the application would be really nice.
