#1367 closed Enhancement (Duplicate)

Move source list to right-hand side

Reported by: ken Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I keep my Colloquy window at the far right of my desktop, and I used to keep the drawer on the right side of the window. In that arrangement, the new message count indicators are always visible even when most of the rest of my display space is covered by other windows.

Since the drawer feature has been removed, I can no longer do this. The new Leopard-style source list will only display on the left-hand side of the window. This puts the new message count indicators in the interior of the window. This is a major reduction in usability for me.

Please add the ability to reposition the source list on the right-hand side of the window. A possible alternative would be to add new message count indicators to Colloquy's Dock icon. At least with that I would always be able to see when I have messages waiting.

Seconded. I upgraded to 2.2.1 (4132) over the weekend, and was disappointed to find that I could not move the list of channels back to the right side of the screen, despite the fact that there does appear to be a preference for it (Under Interface, “Drawer Side:”). So maybe it's actually a bug?

Replying to theory:

So maybe it's actually a bug?

The tabbed UI still uses the drawer, although it's a bug that that option is available while you have the sidebar selected. As well as any other mention of the drawer with regards to the sidebar UI.
