Re: HUD start proposal (joining: Alt (tap) + Alt (Press)
Cluttered up ? Well, put it down or inside (instead of "Type your command").
Read carefully the proposal and judge it after only. That's the way
The idea is flexible and the result effective.
Look at it this way:
- You don't remember the menu options:
- Actions: a) Alt(tap) ; b) Escape; c) Alt (press); d) Escape; e)
With this proposal: you just have to do: Alt(tap)
How many applications do we use in Linux ? Do you know all menu options
? I don't.
It can even help you. Not to talk about the newcomers.

I don't like this idea because it just looks cluttered up.

HUD is the future no doubt about that* ... but needs to have
intrinsically the effectiveness of the Application menus navigation,
at least (for now) to guaranty the reminder/sequence effect of the
"1st order" menu options.
A proposal: why don't we join both HUD start actions (Alt(tap) +
Alt(press) ) in one.
A simple mock-up below with Thunderbird 1st order menus [ Alt(tap)
**The place could be anywhere: top/below/ inside/drop-down, etc.
The rationale is basically that, there is a drawback for a new/mid
user during the "app. menu" learning phase.
And newcomers will thanks this one (my son which is learning Ubuntu
right now, indirectly, came out with this simple & effective idea).
To me it looks very intuitive and simple.
_Most important_: it could a possible development direction in
getting rid of the "Application menus" in the future.
Let see community opinion...
Keep your amazing work... "united for freedom of choice"
