Current Workspaces replicant lacks some obvious things like Quit and About box to right click menu

If you click on the hand (or what it is) you get a about and remove replicant. was that what you was looking for?

comment:2 by diver, 13 years ago

Yes, I know this is a generic way to remove replicants. But ordinary users will try to find it in context menu especially if "Show replicants" option is off.

comment:3 by modeenf, 13 years ago

Ah didn't know this was a generic thing :)

comment:4 by axeld, 13 years ago

"Ordinary users" should get educated about how to use replicants - at least there is no reason to duplicate functionality.

But AFAICT the long-term plan is to show the hand always, but only if the mouse is close. So it's not that annoying anymore, but still serves its purpose.

BTW the hand should really be a bit bigger, since it's very hard to get at the correct point, with higher resolutions.

comment:6 by axeld, 13 years ago

Indeed, but then only if it's not always shown.

comment:7 by diver, 12 years ago

So it this report is invalid then?

Ah now I remember why I wanted About menu item - it contains some useful tips.

comment:10 by diver, 12 years ago

Sometime when switching resolution Workspaces replicant could be visible only partly (upper left part of it), in such cases Quit or "Delete replicant" would be useful.

comment:11 by anevilyak, 12 years ago

That would probably be more ideally fixed by having the shelf relocate the replicant such that it's completely visible in such an instance, the dragger should never be inaccessible. BTW, the right click menu on the dragger has the About item you wanted as well.

comment:12 by diver, 12 years ago

Should I open another ticket about replicant relocation? Dragger with About item is only visible if Show replicants is enabled.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

"Remove replicant" option is added in hrev43367. I'll open a new ticket about replicant relocation.
