package: x2goclient
priority: wishlist

When X2GoClient presents its tiles on the right, most of the options
there can be changed (unless --no-session-edit is passed) by clicking
them, without having to access the session configuration screen.

However, these options are easy to miss due to their size - and clicking
any non-option spot on the tile causes the tile to activate.

I would like to suggest that once the mouse pointer hovers over an
option, the option becomes highlighted - e.g. with a blueish background
and the letter color changed to white instead.

This would provide a better User Experience, as the user gets a visual
feedback of when to click to change the option.

No can do, Dave. Mutable options are already being highlighted on move-over.

1) That's "I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."
   Get your movie quotes right, grasshopper! :-P

2) Maybe there is some kind of highlighting already enabled, but the
   color you are using for it is not helpful, so are the other visual
   cues.  See attached screenshot ...

Well it is, really. It's just that Qt highlights elements differently based on
the selected Windows style. As you're using the Windows-2000-"compatibility"
style, you see almost no highlighting.

The default Aero style in Windows 7 is producing a very visible highlight, though.
