    My sole beef with Baloo is that when there is a bug with a specific file, Baloo doesn't say which one. It just runs in circles, crashes, or whatever. Old Nepomuk had a GUI that spelled out which file was being indexed right now. So when there was a bug, I would have had the chance to delete it, check if it's corrupt, and possibly send the file to KDE.

    Bugs can always happen. That's how software works. But if I can't properly investigate the bug, writing bug reports is pointless.

    That said, the last time I've hit a Baloo bug was like two or three years ago.

      https://phabricator.kde.org/D21622
      https://phabricator.kde.org/D21624
      Wow, thanks a lot! This seriously made my day!

      I never figured press-and-hold was a thing, yet I've used KDE on a daily basis for more than 7 years... THanks for the tip (though press-and-hold also unnecessarily slows things down, so I agree that making use of the arrow as a drop-down is a better option.

      Regarding D21622, it is true that the arrow area is small. Perhaps the context menu could additionally be augmented with the various actions on such buttons? (context would be triggered by a long press on touchscreens, but right click with a mouse).

      Thank you again!

        You're welcome! Adding them to the context menu would help too. I'll look into it.

          It looks like a bug, but I think someone complained that maximised windows can be resized on multi-screen setup and it shouldn't and the developers probably changed the behaviour. But I don't really know what to say on this.

            I'm using Kubuntu 19.04 with KDE Plasma 5.16 beta and until I find the right pixel both on the vertical elges (left and right) and bottom (right) corner, I don't see the resize handle so I cannot click-hold and drag to start resizing.
            Coming from Windows 7, this seems to take a lot of time.
            I used Cinnamon before and I don't remember seeing this problem or it was not that bad, but here, it really makes me lose time.
            This is intentional, but can be changed. If you want the Windows-style behavior, you can turn it on with System Settings > Application Style > Window Decorations > Breeze > Configure > check "Allow Resizing maximized windows from window edges".

            Note that this will slow down access to anything that touches a screen edge because that thing won't be clickable on the pixel that touches the screen edge anymore.
