Window indicators of Unity dock bar are too small
I am guessing that this might be just bad design than a bug, but anyway.
At least on my resolution the window indicators of the Unitys left hand dock way too small to provide reasonable usability. I am talking about the microscopic grey dots and arrows on the right and left side of the application, which has windows open.
On my display resolution these arrows and dots are about 1x1mm in size, making them difficult to see in case:
- You have less than perfect eyesight (mine is perfect though)
- I have bigger dust and dirt particles on my screen - many work PCs that are used hard and travel a lot tend to have that
- In bright light conditions
- They are so small that they are neglected by new Unity users, who are not aware what to look for
Switching from applications and windows to each other is one of the basic features of desktop UI. This functionality should have obvious visility and accessibility. The size of the indicators on this my resolution is way too small. Also the color scheme (grey on violet) lacks contrast to make it even worse.
