            Bug ID: 338687
           Summary: Number of notes displayed in the system tray by
           Product: knotes
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux

Since version 4.12 (or 4.11), KNotes's system tray icon appears with a number
in foreground. After an initial incomprehension, I figured out that this must
be the number of notes I have, which I verified.

I see that displaying this number is an option. The feature was requested in
tickets 82416 and 238574. I understand that there is a valid use case if
someone uses KNotes to store TODO items and nothing else (although it seems
KOrganizer should be a much better choice for task management). I am not asking
to remove that feature, but to disable it by default. The impact it has on the
usability has been underestimated. Displaying this number is a distraction for
the vast majority of users who are not in the case described above, and makes
distinguishing KNotes from other applications in the systray less easy.

By the way, it seems disabling the preference is broken. You have to disable it
twice before the number disappears (although it shows as already disabled the
second time you enter the screen).

By the way, version 4.14 is not offered in the field.
