Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

With a filled launcher bar it's difficult to expand the lower launcher icons, especially the workspace switcher. If you enter the bar a bit above the icon you want to click, it will expand behind the trash can. I imagine that hitting this small area can be hard for touchpad and touchscreen users.

How about expanding the whole list from the bottom if you enter the launcher bar close to the trash, so you always see the last x launcher icons expanded?

Yeah, this is a bit fiddly. I think it's even harder right now because the edge-scrolling on the launcher has yet to be implemented. I'd say we track the edge-scrolling functionality in this bug first, and then see if it's still an issue to access the bottom launchers.
