Tumbleweed Build 510 Dolphin is missing the ability to change icon size of folders in the left panel

Roman Bysh
Hi all,

I did a fresh install of Tumbleweed Build 510 Plasma 5.9.5. I noticed when you right-click
on the icons in the left panel I can no longer change the the size of the folders.

The only work around was to manually add the following to dolphinrc.


[PlacesPanel]
IconSize=32


Cheers!

Roman

You need to right-click on an empty space, not on an icon directly.

Kind Regards,

Aha.  Thanks Wolfgang.
It was more logical to right-click on the folder to change the icon size.
Plasma 5.8x had it right.
 
Cheers!

no, it is more logical now.  you are not changing the icon itself but the
display in dolphin, ie: you are changing dolphin not the icon.  present
condiiton is most logical.

It was more logical to right-click on an icon, changing "its" size, and have
*all* icons affected? ;)

That's the reason for this change: "- Moving Icon Size to the global context
menu rather than the item context menu where it made no sense from a context
perspective"
( https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/109015/ )

Anyway, feel free to file a bug report at http://bugs.kde.org/.

No.

This has nothing to do with Plasma, we are talking about dolphin here.
Dolphin is not even released together with Plasma, it is part of KDE
Applications (hence the different version number scheme, 17.04 vs 5.8/5.9).

It doesn't make a difference if you run the same dolphin version in Plasma 5.8
or 5.9 (or any other desktop, for that matter).

Kind Regards,
Wolfgang
