Appearance > Behavior > Reveal sensitivity should work opposite
The reveal sensitivity slider in Appearance > Behavior gave me the impression that it went from slow to fast. After carefully reading the labels, I eventually figured out that it was opposite. But if the immediate reaction counts, and I think it should, then it seems to me that it should work the opposite way, so that left is most sensitive.
I understand why that might sound odd. However, I think most users won't look at it as sensitivity, but how long it takes to reveal the launcher. In that case, it makes sense that right will decrease sensitivitym since you're increasing the time it takes to reveal it.. Of course, this is my subjective experience. But if I were surprised – I actually thought it didn't work at first – then I think others might too. At the very least, this should be tested on innocent users.
It might've been easier to understand if the default was at the middle. The fact that this wouldn't necessarily be mathematically correct, is less important, I think.
