Antialiased Windows Corner

Antialiased windows corners

Another microscopic change which is difficult to notice but gives a clean and sharper look especially in HD Screens. Thanks to the introduction of GTK3 CSS-themed window decorations for Unity 7, all application windows now have antialiased corners. It was not handled by Decor Compiz plugin which was used to draw window borders in ubuntu previous releases. It’s a trivial but noticeable change.

All App Windows Go Borderless for Default Theme

The default Ambiance and Radiance themes will be borderless decoration in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr. The default Ambiance and Radiance themes will remove that extra one-pixel border from the all application windows. This gives a bit of sharper look.

This change was introduced for a short period during the Ubuntu 11.04 development cycle but that change was reverted because of some Unity 2D related issues.

Keyboard filtering for Unity Spread

If you are working with few applications and windows open at the same time, all you have to do is to press key button (Super key + W) in order to shows all the apps window. The search is functional and if you look for System Setting, for example: you only need to type “syst” or “sett” and the System Setting window will be singled out.

Type-ahead find allows to type the name of a file or directory in the nautilus file manager to select it without searching in the sub-folders while the recursive search is, like the name suggests, a search inside the current folder and all its sub-folders which makes it annoying at times if all you want to do is select a file in the current directory – after all, Nautilus does have a search button you can use if you want to search everywhere.
