Ticket #413 (new task)
remove beginner mode
|Reported by:||daxim||Owned by:|
The concept of user levels has been discussed and studied extensively, conclusion is that it is a bad idea. (For a summary, see <http://usability.kde.org/activity/recent/userlevels.php>, for details, read the mailing list archive <http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-usability>.) I am confident that with careful analysis and UI tweaking and menu restructuring, beginner mode can be eliminated altogether.
A first step to get this problem under control is to separate out lesser-used options for each dialog pane, then offer them only on demand. The function for unhiding should be right there, not a global setting far away in the preferences.
