How this popup or how any other practical detail should behave, should not be
an issue in itself, but a given answer from how the Drag&Drop concept in
general shall work in KDE(per-application D&D configuration options is
another example). In other words, I don't think we can reach a sensible
answer in this thread -- it easily becomes an ad-hoc solution inconsistent to
other situations and without a broader thinking -- but we must look at it
from a wider perspective. Our current HIG is not extensive enough to be of
use, but our future HIG will cover it. Ending this thread: good idea.
Research current HIGs, ponder, and write a Drag&Drop draft for the future
HIG: good idea.
I opened a bug report on this so it doesn't get forgotten:
BTW, filing bug reports on "HIG" is a great way to make sure the HIG should
cover a certain topic which people find unclear or wonder about. For example,
in case a micro issue is brought to discussion(the common case) and people
don't know how to handle it, a bug can be filed so a clear and definitive
answer is at some point given. Remember to separate the bug description(what
needs to be covered) from suggestions to how to solve it.
