@moosmas With 4,500 feature requests, and a small team, those needed by few users or difficult to implement may have to wait for a long time. Wherever you see that a feature is tagged as In Progress, it may get done this year rather than next.
@thisusernameisavaible said in Remove restrictions on Web Panel width - also allow fullscreen mode:
But, i swear, u will very help my browser work, just removing the minimum width of panels
+1 for unlock minimum panel width! For downloads as well
@ouros said in Possibility of having the sections of the panel in the upper bar of Vivaldi Desktop:
there are sidebar options such as downloads that seem "essential" to me.
I don't need to see the Downloads Panel every time I download a file. On broadband, the download usually completes within seconds, then the notification pops up, which I can click to go to my downloads folder in Windows Explorer.
The default setting is designed for new users:
Open Download Panel Automatically
Notify on Completed Downloads
A common question that new users ask is “How do I stop the downloads panel opening?” My approach to new software is to look through the menus and dialogs to see what each item does, before opening Help if I cannot figure it out.
There is already a request for Downloads button, but putting every panel icon on the Address Bar is just too much — there are eleven of them if the mail is enabled.
@pesala thank you, I know about sorting, though I do not use one. It does not improve navigation much for me.
My use case - several sites with hundreds of history entries (maps, google, wiki), and a dosen of other sites I visit, with a handful of pages each. So with folders I can observe my whole last day of browsing on one screen, on a side panel (when giants like google and maps are folded), and I can quickly revisit some content pages. This is the way I used to work with Opera back in 2012-2015, and it is really fast.
I agree, and this could be 'easily' done given how the notes already use markdown and preview then.
My Sugesstion: drag and drop dropdown
Users would simply drag an image to the note
As soon as the user lifts the finger a dropdown shows up in place with 'embed image' and 'attach image'. Clicking outside of the dropdown cancels the action.
Both are pasted as markdown embed images:
![name/description](url link) -> as embeded image
![name](uri link) -> as attachment
When dropping as attachment the image is downloaded/added as an attachment on the botton/clip like normal attachments are - a file saved in the cache/data, but then the text pastes a uri (link to file) to where the attachment is saved.
I just started using vivaldi, and seeing the panels feature showcased is what led me to it. As soon as i started using it i was overjoyed... but then notes (one of the things i most wanted) felt better on the right, so there i went changing it.
Then my other web panels felt better for the left...
first day, first use, i went searching how to have it on 2 sides and got here. Even made the account so i could vote for the feature and comment.
Idk if im an average user or how many i represent, but id take that as an indication that this is higher priority one. It would be extremely useful and i bet many people who dont feel the need for it once trying would end up using it.
-i tried tiling wich is amazing, but not even pinning a tiled tab can simulate a panel. Tiling works best for a case by case need
-having 2 panels open at the same time can be useful for everyone, even in a 'rarely ever needed' usecase.
-ux wise left and right are very different- western cultures read left to right and this changes how we perceive everything. For westerners the left calls for attention during browsing, the right feels like an extra where the eyes dont focus as much. For right-left reading countries its the other way around.
Not to mention widescreens and so on.
In my case im not on a widescreen but a large 4k monitor.
The floating panel could work but for notes i would frequently need then non floating- but then websites dont become really centralized the way id prefer, unless perhaps i resize the window, and would be just ignoring space id rather have something else open.
Plus i will have to be switching back and forth the entire time (because of other panels i want to use)... for us who have the use this is invaluable.
@pesala said in Drag and Drop Notes to Desktop:
I don't get what the advantage is of having dozens of text files when we already have the notes safely saved and synchronised in Vivaldi.
Example off the top of my head:
When I pay the light bill, I get a confirmation number. Select number --> Save as note --> Drag note to "Light Bill Confirmation Numbers" folder (in a larger "Receipts" folder) on desktop.
A year and a half later, I'm on the phone will the light company as there's been a problem with my bill/payments. "Do you have the confirmation number for your October 2020 payment??"
"Sure do." Open folder, click "date modified", scan down to 10/20, read off the number it was probably auto-named.
we already have the notes safely saved and synchronised in Vivaldi
Do we? Okay, let's make a back-up. With my way, I take my "Receipts" folder from above and drag it to a memory stick. In Vivaldi... Actually, I don't know. Hopefully, Vivaldi's cloud doesn't go down. Hopefully...
New or different computer? With my way, I take the above memory stick and plug it in. In Vivaldi, I have to install Vivaldi on new/different computer, log in, and wait for it to sync. Wait! The new/different computer currently has no internet access!
(actually, my long term feature request is for Vivaldi to include your computer's desktop on the start page which would solve everything. But this is my 'baby step' solution)
Sure, i was thinking on this dilema with hiding the Status Bar and Panel Toolbar.
Perhaps the solution could be in some pop-up buttons in left down corner (for the combination i will have both Left panel and Status Bar hidden). I can imagine this.
Or to set up some rules, i mean if Panel Toolbar is enabled i can hide the Status Bar (via some button on Panel Toolbar), and opposite - which is the actual state. I guess that there will be some users they prefer just one panel (namely Status Bar), not both.
Your solution with adding the button on Address Bar is acceptable.
Anyway, pop-up button in left down corner sounds fine to me.
@thisusernameisavaible said in Allow Extensions to work with Web Panels:
agreed. I use Duolingo in my vivaldi panel and allowance to use dark mode using an extension will really help my eyes and me to learn Japanese better 🙄
Hi, while we wait for this request to be implemented, you can try using this mod Zoom, Find in Page & other actions in Web Panels
The user put a gif to see how it works, if you just have to use dark mode it should solve your problem.
