Great widget!

I do have a 'Feature Request': It would be really wonderful if the sub-items could fly out in a tree view when hovered, and only open when clicked.

I believe there was a similar functionality in KDE 3 or 4. One would click on the tray icon and the list would pop-up, and when the mouse was hovered over an item, a tree view of the folder contents would pop-out sideways. You could traverse down the directory structure this way and open files by clicking.

Thank you! Great work.

Thank you for your comment. But sorry, that would be outside of the scope of this simple widget. Adding such a feature would be too much work for me.

Thanks a lot for this wonderful widget.
I have a problem with editing the menu. The menu is too long and has things that are not really 'places' like searching images or documents.
Can you please add the option of removing them from the menu just like the option of 'show devices'.
I am currently on KDE Plasma 5.13.4.
Here is a screenshot that clarifies my point.

Thank you for your comment. There is an issue for this feature request on github (https://github.com/dfaust/plasma-applet-places-widget/issues/3). But I don't have much time right now, so please don't expect any progress.

Excellent widget that I use every day. Thanks for your hard work. One issue I have is that I can't make the timeline or search shortcuts disappear. The are hidden in Dolphin, and I have unchecked "Show Hidden Places" but I still have timeline:/today, timeline:/yesterday, etc, and search:/documents, search:/images, etc. On a small screen this takes up too much space when I just really want shortcuts to a few directories.

Thank you. I have used it for a long time, it is indispensable for me. Unfortunately it does not work perfectly with kde plasma 5.11.5 and frameworks 5.42. When hiding devices or folders in dolphin the widget shows all the entries.

I can't reproduce that problem. Have you tried logging out and in again?

Yes. try closing logging out and in again. Try a clean installation and in another PC that happened the same when updating. I hope everything is solved now with KDE Plasma 5.12. Thank you very much anyway.

I can't install it on KDE 5.10. Can you compatibilize these extension?

I got it working on 5.11: clone the git repository, in metadata.desktop remove "Plasma/PopupApplet" from the "X-KDE-ServiceTypes" row, build and install

Thanks, I will try after I figure how to do It. I will ask support in some forum with my language because I never did these kind of installations before with Linux. After that I will post another comment eventually. :)
