Developer, please use this page to add questions and requests about the KDE4 Human Interface Guidelines (HIG)

  • Please list questions about the KDE4 HIG here
  • Also include your name/IRC nick/email if you want to be contacted for follow up questions
  • Be as specific as possible and include a screenshot if applicable. This email on the kde-usability mailing list is a good example of a HIG question/request.


  • Which buttons have icons and when should we use/not use icons on buttons?
  • The growth policy: are widgets supposed to grow and take all the available (horizontal) space, even in case of widgets that don't have a size policy for expanding?
  • Should the horizontal alignment of the layout be left- or center-? (eg: sample screenshot)
