Bug Description

The tile label and quicklist shouldn't appear over the tile itself, the arrow should actually match the position of the arrow which indicates the focus application.

this bug is fixed for the tile's label but when you right click on tile the quicklist moves slightly to the left.

I meant its half fixed.

Christian Giordano (nuthinking) wrote :

Unfortunately the angle of the two arrows (tile and label/quick-menu) have different angle, so there is not a clean overlay. It's better then before. I guess we should modify the one in the quick menu, will put Otto in the loop.

Just checked and when the label (on mouse hover) position seems correct horizontally, the quick list one is still off.

What is "still off"? Do you have a screenshot (bettter a screencast)? On my systems the quicklist cleanly expands out of the tooltip. Which version are you running?

Mirco Müller (macslow) wrote :

Watch the attached screencast. There is nothing off or jumping when going from the tooltip to the quicklist. This is current trunk. No difference in regards to tooltip/quicklist positioning. Marking is as "Fixed Released" again.

Hi Mirco, on your screencast seems to work really well. Unfortunately, as you can imagine, my test conditions are not ideal :S

Thanks!

P.S.: There are some visual tweaks that Otto will have to do but I guess won't be for the launch.

As pointed out to Mirco, with 0.2.40 the problem with my machine is still there.

Mirco Müller (macslow) wrote :

Unfortunately this is still not fully fixed. For some very odd (unknown) reason the 0.2.40 from the repo still yields this x-offset between the tooltip and the quicklist. But for untiy (also 0.2.40) compiled and installed locally it is not happening.

So now the in linked branch the offset is the same for tooltip and quicklist. This hopefully fixes this bug for real and no more odd side-effects.
