Make GlobalMenu always visible

Asked by Marcus Moeller on 2011-04-06

Hi all.

This is more a feature request, than a question. It would be great to have an option to set the GlobalMenu to always show the application menues instead of needing to hover the title.

e.g. if firefox is open, it should show the shortened window title, followed by File ... menues. Hover should then completely be disabled.

This has been discussed on the ML, already and I also feel that we should offer at least an option to define the behavior.

Hi. In my opinion this is an important feature.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

Any update on that?

When I need a menu without hovering with the mouse, I just press <Alt>.

Pressing Alt is an option, but not what I meant. I am just looking for an option, to always show (shorten) application name + the menues (like on Apple, e.g.)

I would like also this behaviour and other friends who use Ubuntu think so.
