Notion 6.3: Why are there two palettes in the workspace?

asked Dec 28, 2017 in Notion Feature Requests by waynerose1 (3,740 points)

In the Notion workspace, I can call up the palette in two ways. Cmd+; brings the palette up docked at the bottom of the display. However, right clicking the mouse positions a second palette wherever I click in the workspace. Oddly, both palettes can be open at the same time, which is kind of useless. Is this a persistent bug?

The annoying aspect of this functionality is that I can hide the stationary palette at the bottom of the screen, evidently Cmd+; is a toggle, but not the movable palette. It remains visible no matter what.

The movable palette is a great idea, but the user ought to be able to hide it with a keyboard shortcut. What I mean is, there really should be only one palette, called up with the keyboard shortcut. Initially, it should appear at the bottom of the screen as it now does, but it should not appear there after it has been moved, and Cmd+; should call up the palette in its most recent position as well as hide it no matter where it sits in the workspace.

To summarize: one palette, docked or undocked, opened and closed with Cmd+;.

Seems simple enough. Can't understand why it wasn't programmed this way in the first place.frown
