 some questions

First of all: great idea, looks very good.

But how do I navigate? When a tab contains a lot of icons I cannot reach them, I'd need to scroll but that's not possible. Natural for me would be to use the scrollwheel but that does not work. In some screenshots I saw a bar at the bottom with page numbers I guess but I don't have that bar.

When I hit any key (even cursor keys or page up/down) the menu switches to the search box. Is it a feature or but and is it a feature that the search box is on a separate page?

Is there a way to make the menu smaller than the screen? It doesn't matter if I tick "fullscreen" or not, it is always fullscreen and always looks the same.

I compiled it on Debian Sid 64bit in case that matters...

And two wishlist entries ;)

How about an option to hide certain tabs? E.g. would like to hide the Debian menu.

And how about an option to have tab bar at the bottom? Would feel more "natural" for me because it is nearer to the point where the mouse is when you start the menu.

When you have too many icons a bar appear in the bottom of the plasmoid to allow you to see more pages. Try to adjust the number of icons peer page and their size.

With the fullscreen mode adjust the icon size to adjust the menu size.

To hide the Debian menu make right click in the Takeoff bar icon and edit your menu.

Thanks for your answer. As I wrote I don't have that bar with the pages, no matter how much icons there are. The Debian menu contains hundreds of icons and only that one page is shown. The last row of icons even is only shown half. In that case it even wouldn't help to decrease the icon size (which I don't want btw), too many icons.

And I don't want to delete the debian menu, I just want to hide it in takeoff. It makes some sense (more or less) in a menu with submenus - but not in takeoff which doesn't show submenus.

Decreased the number of rows by one and now the page numbers are visible.

Is the searchbox meant to be on a separate page or is that a similar problem?

BTW: it would be helpful if the configuration for the icon size would show a tooltip with the size. By now you have to adjust the size "blind". And it would also help to find the icon sizes in which the icons are available so that you don't get blurry icons.

Have the search box in a separate page is the desired functionality, it becomes visible when you begin to type

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
