Marlin Properties by DanRabbit Marlin Properties by DanRabbit
Just thinking about possibilities for Marlin's Properties dialog.

Changed from a popover because some commenters pointed out a problem with comparing file info.

I'm open to suggestions about addition data/options to show

One thing that I've been thinking about is that most popovers should be tearable. Have a look at [link] - all of those HUDs start out as popovers that you can tear off to make little floating windows. It works well in practice (IMHO), too.

This should be added to Pantheon Files!

Very very nice!

Suggestion, an option for "mark as executable" specifically for Java (Minecraft) files. ;)

Thank you for making that suggestion as I was about too! It is one of the few things that bugs the hell out of me about pantheon! (The other being the lack of a easy way to Minimize windows -_-)

Some people also like to check the bitrate of their media, perhaps you should add that too.

Why Permissions field is so cramped, why so much wasted whitespace around, why not center it? this always really irks me.

Oh jeez I hadn't noticed that it was not centered and now it bugs the heck out of me.

It's not centered because it's indented under it's header. I'm not sure what you mean by "cramped". I would have made it taller, but I was just too lazy and figured it was not necessary since there wasn't really that much content present.

Man you must stop do this amazing mockups, i get disapointed everytime i minimize my browser !!
Maybe marlin should give the option to chose the tipe of properties: popover || modal ; i think some people never compares files, like me;

Amaziing!!

I think that after is better actually, and more logical, I'm sure that it's less used.

Shouldn't there be a way to share the file/folder in the network through samba under the "sharing"-section?
Reply
:icondanrabbit:
DanRabbit Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Yes sir, but this isn't a folder, this is a file ;)

Maybe I'll post an updated mockup that shows how folders are different :)

If you're changing from a popover to be able to compare file info, why make it modal? You can't view multiple modals at once.
Reply

DanRabbit Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Are you sure about that? I'd like to test that.

When a modal is open, you can't click on the main window. So once you open a properties modal you wouldn't be able to right click on an icon to open another modal.

Haven't used Ubuntu in a while, so I don't remember if this is true in GTK, but it should be.

yea sorry, my terminology was wrong. The window class is actually called "Transient"
Reply
:iconjxtreme42:
jxtreme42 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
And you're styling transient windows like modals? Minus the dimmed main window, I'd assume.

That's great!
Especially the permission part... Clear, simple and quick... =D

I know that this is a mockup.
But consider that in "More" section, there could be much more field...
For example... in a video there is the dimension, framerate, codec audio/video....
Same thing for audio and pictures.
That's mean a scrollbar in "More" section or an extra section like "Details"...
Just saying... =)

Get rid of the underline on hover in Marlin. Underline is ugly.

Related to this mockup: Nice GTK 3...list view button things. Yeah... Interesting placement of pop-up menus in a list view like that. Looks like it'd work, though.

I liked the popover better. You could use the popover, and add a pinpoint icon or something that you can press to keep it from disappearing?

To address the issues of comparing multiple files. How about adding a 'keep open' button. I believe KDE and Openbox have something like that for windows.

Yeah, I think too that that's there'll be problems when you want to check multiple files' properties.

Talk about being slick, awesome idea but there should be a more obvious way of dismissing it. A close button being the most straightforward suggestion.

Sometimes I need to compare two (or more) file properties...
In this mockup I don't see that possibility... Or am I wrong?

Ah that's a very good point! I knew there would be some reason this shouldn't be a popover :p

Looks fantastic!
Another concern, related to the one pointed out by DavidRaid, is what happen when you want to see the properties for multiples files/folders in one dialog.
Reply
:icondavidraid:
DavidRaid Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
Hmm. My only concern would be that as a pop-up, it wouldn't function as another window. This would mean a user wouldn't be able to open up two properties windows and compare two folders or items.

Aside from that, it looks fan-bloody-tastic!
