Elementary HUD v2 mockup by eldelacajita Elementary HUD v2 mockup by eldelacajita
A second round on this previous HUD mockup, using as background this Inkscape mockup by Harvey (~BassUltra).

I simplified it a bit, removed the darkening of the application window and tried different positions. Which one would make more sense to you?

The 4th one is best,
1) It is near the Appmenu
2) Allows to see more content

I think 4 is better because it is nearer to the Appmenu, where these options are supposed to be.

I agree. The menu search should be near the appmenu.

That was the idea behind that one, but HUD is a keyboard-centric feature, so that wouldn't really be so important as if we were using the mouse.

Thanks! With those versions I was also trying to figure out how modal windows in general would look. This isn't quite solved yet in elementary.

You mean the underlying Inkscape mockup? Not sure. I've read it to become part of the official HIG for Luna+1, but there were still some issues to be solved and I'm not even sure if elementary core developers are fine with that vision.

I like number 2 and 3 the most, although number 4 would make more sense than number 2 for LTR languages. I think I would pick number 2 overall.

Creo que sería bastante bueno una clase de combinación entre la maqueta previa a ésta y la segunda de arriba a abajo de ésta; en si, una clase de modal dialog pero con el resto de la ventana en gris, o al menos lo que este debajo de la decoración.

Sí, el problema que comentó alguien es que si usas mucho est función, el oscurecimiento de la ventana se puede convertir en un parpadeo un poco mareante.

¿Y por qué no intentar mas bien con un desenfoque?, en lugar de oscurecer, pero un desenfoque leve y lento, algo que no joda mucho a la vista.

Maybe it's because I'm used to seeing the dash, but I think number 3 is the best one.

Makes more sense as a modal dialog than a separate window to me (last 3)

Yeah, it seems like it ought to just be consistent with other modal dialogs. The topleft position is familiar from menubars, but as something that's keyboard-driven and by nature interrupts other interaction with the window, it makes the most sense just to float it at the center of the window.

The close button might be redundant if clicking outside the box exits the search anyway, though. What happens when a user clicks outside the box?

Yes, the close button is probably redundant, specially because when using the keyboard the natural way of leaving the dialog is pressing "Esc" to exit or "Enter" to take action.

Centred, with the close button.
