[suggestion] Open submenus consistently in the same direction
Submitted by gg
whether a submenu comes up to the left or right of a main menu is determined by space to edge of screen.
width of a submenu is determined by its text.
result is that, depenant on the text, some submenus may come on a different side to the current or last one.
this is very disrouting at first and even once you know what is happeding it is destruptive.
A better solution would for this to be determined globally for the main menu so that all submenus fall consistantly one side or the other.
Other information: ex. gimp colours menu . Place an image window about 2cm from RH screen edge. Select Colours menu and roll down the menu.
Auto and Components come to the right, Map jumps left, Info goes back to the right
Similar effect with filters menu if my image is about mid screen. I try to browse the various filers and I get about half and half:
L R L L R L L R ... etc.
my head is spinning by the time I get to see Decor at the bottom (right).
