[Bug 1542489] Re: New Gedit Can't Show Menu in Title Bar


Can confirm the bug - the headerbar is NOT supposed to be displayed in
Unity - only for gnome-shell.

The patch that is included in gedit source for xenial (0001) to do this
menu thing doesnt seem to hide the headerbar and display the normal
window decoration.

Lonnie - that patch - once it is made to work correctly will bring back
the menu - there isnt a need to switch to pluma.

  New Gedit Can't Show Menu in Title Bar

Bug description:
  Take a look at this screen shot:

  I like for application menus to show in the Title Bar (not at the top-
  panel). However, in the new Gedit GUI, the menu is inaccessible if
  your desktop preference is to show menus in title bar.

  Unless this changes, I won't use gedit anymore because my preference
  of showing menus in title bars outweighs my desire to use gedit.
  Perhaps Ubuntu should consider using pluma as the default text-editor
  or geany.

  It doesn't make sense for gedit to remain the default text-editor if
  it cannot play nice with Unity's Desktop-Level menu settings.
