-    * I've seen something like this in OS X recently: whenever drag-and-drop is initiated in Finder, ​[[http://​www.techteam.gr/​mac/​screenshots/​40050.jpg|a black drop area pops up]] at th edge of the screen. Files can be dropped there and users can later drag them from the area back into another folder or application. We could do something similar.

       * Have a simple D-Bus service that allows to store/​retrieve a list of URIs (potentially grouped by an application or task specific ID). Have a standalone application or a panel plugin implement this to visualize the files that are in memory. Maybe split up the visualization into a "​copy"​ and a "​cut"​ area. In Thunar, add URIs to this storage if Ctrl+C/​Ctrl+X are pressed or whatever other methods there are to initiate a copy/cut operation. Heck, maybe even allow arbitrary objects to be stored instead of just URIs, perhaps using a semantic temporary storage. We could also think about defining standard storage group IDs for common purposes. ​ --- //​[[jannis@xfce.org|Jannis Pohlmann]] 2011/09/20 15:40//       * Have a simple D-Bus service that allows to store/​retrieve a list of URIs (potentially grouped by an application or task specific ID).

-  * **Terminal: Make tabs look the same as in other programs**. ​ 
-    * See https://​bugzilla.xfce.org/​show_bug.cgi?​id=7616 for more information. A [[https://​bugzilla.xfce.org/​attachment.cgi?​id=3703|screenshots of the difference]] is in the bug too. 
-      * I agree the tabs look nicer, but the border around the VteWidget is ugly and makes the terminal resize. --- //​[[nick@xfce.org|Nick Schermer]] 2011/06/04 10:34// 
-  * **Thunar and keyboard** --- //​[[pops451@gmail.com|pops]] 2011/06/05 13:23// 
-    * When you create a new folder or file, you type the name, press enter and then you want to open it by pressing enter a second time but you can't. Solution is to just make the file/folder selected after it was created. --- //​[[pops451@gmail.com|pops]] 2011/06/05 13:23// 
-  * **xfwm4-tabwin** //​[[nick@afternight.org|nickl]] 2011/​06/​05//​ 
-    * Users should have the option of only showing the outline of the window (which is currently the only option) or the actual window itself, when alt-tabbing. ​ This is especially useful, for example, when you have many terminals open on a single desktop and what to see what's in each one.  
-      * Showing the window makes cycling slower and there is an option to cycle windows of the same application which helps with many terminals. See [[https://​bugzilla.xfce.org/​show_bug.cgi?​id=2701|Bug 2701]] for more information on this matter. --- //​[[peter@xfce.org|Peter de Ridder]] 2011/12/16 11:24// 
-    * Would also be nice if the opacity of the window being shown could be selected. ​

     * I think that this can by a good solution for the gtk3-engine-xfce and the theme in gtk3, since nobody care for these component nor the theming, I think is good simply and for all select a non engine-dependant theme and whit popper maintainance. And make it the default.     * I think that this can by a good solution for the gtk3-engine-xfce and the theme in gtk3, since nobody care for these component nor the theming, I think is good simply and for all select a non engine-dependant theme and whit popper maintainance.
