Power menu - not enough padding between discharge time and percentage
Last modified: 2013-01-08 22:30:55 UTC
See the screenshot:
"remaining" and "14%" are so close that they virtually run into each other. It would look better and be easier to read if they were kept further apart.
I see roughly 1em of space there, which should be enough to separate the information.
So, how much padding do you expect there? 24px / 2em? More?
Consider also this varies with language, i.e. in italian the menu is larger because of the longer settings panel name.
Looking at the mockups, 24px seems about right.
One thing to note - it would be good if the menu didn't change width when the percentage goes from single/double/triple digits. (Don't know whether it does that currently or not.)
It changes width, yes.
And I had in mind a static 24px padding on the percentage.
Doing something fancier to keep the menu stable and keep it as a proper padding (instead of aligning to the right of the longest string in the menu) would be more work.
We can make stable width a separate issue. No need to let it block on this.

PowerMenu: increase padding to the left of the percentage
This avoids having the percentage and device label in close succession.
