The shutdown icon in the top left corner should be changed.. I'd be happy to provide some alternatives! Can you tell me the size of that icon? Then I'd send make and send you some and see how it looks!
Also maybe the running programs icons should be a taddd bitt smaller.. They take too much space, especially if you have a bunch more apps running.
I think something is not quite right about this dialog... I mean... there's too much colors I think, at first sight it just split my focus. It would be better with a monochrome shutdown icon, and/or the app icons should have a little transparency (around 48-64%... I'm from tablet now, I can't try it myself but tomorrow I will).
Er... the situation isn't that bad as it seems from my feedback... actually I love this mockup,
Nah, accidentally i send it while i was writing. -.-" so i just wanted to say that i love this mockup, and i think its clean and elegant enough in this stage already, i just mentioned some ideas about how it could be even better (in my opinion).
I think the idea is that the icons should be informative enough. Really the user should only be told what apps they have been interacting with as obviously there are many other processes that are still running.
I would say that bluetooth should only show if there's an active connection because it's a standard service that is usually running anyway.
I like the use of red in the shut-down button, will this (the use of red to denote terminative/serious decisions) be a common-place feature in elementary (Luna or Luna+1)?
Something does look a little 'unbalanced' about the dialog as a hole though. I can't quite place it though. I'm probably just not used to seeing the 'current running applications' in there. It's very busy (icon wise) but certainly a useful reminder.
I also like the general idea of blurring out the background when a dialog appears. Although I would tone down the blur a little, so as to be a little less 'drugged hippy' and a little more 'smoked glass'.
Yes I would like to have the red button show up in more apps where serious decisions are made. Especially when we're talking about decisions that could lead to a loss of data. I imagine that it wouldn't be a really common thing until more like L+1, but the CSS class for the style is already in place, so we just need to get apps to start using it.
Yea, I agree. I'm wondering if maybe I should center the icons or use smaller icons or something.
Yes, it definitely looks better with the running apps icons centered.
I also noticed that snap uses a red 'capture' button. A little outside of the brief there I think (image capture not being a critical action, although red is/was the traditional colour for 'record' functionality). Snap does look pretty none-the-less.
I've often questioned the wisdom of this particular 'feature' of dialogs. Although, if memory serves, the dual presence of both a cancel button and a close window control is mandated in the GNOME HIG (I'm not sure if it's a feature of elementary's HIG). The fact that, in this mock-up, the close window control is non-standard (i.e. doesn't look like your common-law garden-variety window control) only serves to increase the ambiguity here. So probably a good idea to either scrap the window control or else make it look like the standard window controls seen elsewhere.
