Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51317
Menus are too sticky
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
Not sure why, but the behavior of menu selections from KDE's panel is now
pretty user hostile. A selected menu used to disappear when you moved away
from it. Now - if a sub-menu is displayed, the menu stays up "forever" [or
at least until you click on the main menu or the item that caused the menu
to pop up in the first place.
Select a menu (e.g., Internet) with a submenu. Display the submenu. Move
the mouse away & work with other windows. The menu stays up.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select the "K" logo on the right side of KDE's panel.
2. Select a submenu (e.g., Games).
3. Click on another window & keep working. The menu stays up and often
blocks your view of the area you are working in.
Menu displays long after you are "done" with it.
Menu disappears when you move "too far" away (the 7.1 behavior).
If there is a setting for this [and/or a help guide I should have found],
please let me know.
This behavior was needed for technical reasons when we added the tear-off
possibility to the menus.
The code will probably be changed to allow the old behavior along with
tear-off menus in the KDE 3.0 timeframe.
