Kleopatra: Usability improvement for Notepad
Open, WishlistPublic

Description

Ingo I am assigning this directly to you because I also want to hear your opinion with a thought to accessibility.

I am not a fan of the current notepad recipients. I would rather have a split widget with a vertical split between notepad and recipients with a moveable splitter. So that users can decide to enlarge the notepad or the recipients by moving the splitter.

Originally I had chosen the Tab Widget because I planned to have the Notepad as MIME Reader which would also show attachments and other parts of the MIME Structure. That is still a goal but I think in this case movable splitters are better then tabs.

I fully agree. I also think that the separate recipient tab are rather annoying, in particular, because I usually want to select the recipients before I write the text. Accessibility will also benefit if all inputs can be reached easily with the Tab key without the need to switch between different tabs.
