Is it possible to configure this grid in the application menu?

Hello! It's possible to configure the amount of columns, icon size, label position and fill direction (columns first or rows first) using "Right Click->Configure Application Launcher..." menu.

Hello cupnoodles, I meant the menu with all the apps and not just the favorites. I don't want to use just in favorite apps, but in all apps. I don't know if you understand. I am brazilian and i don't speak english well

Currently it's not possible without editing the code, since I never use the Applications tab.

You can open `$HOME/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.gitlab.cupnoodles14.kickoff/contents/ui/ApplicationsView.qml` and replace `KickoffListView` with `KickoffGridView`. It will display apps and categories in a grid. It will use the same settings as the favorites view though.

Here's a command to do it (if you have the same path for plasmoids as me) and restart plasma to apply changes.

```
sed -i 's/KickoffListView/KickoffGridView/' $HOME/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.gitlab.cupnoodles14.kickoff/contents/ui/ApplicationsView.qml

kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell
```

(I'm pretty sure markdown doesn't work here but I'll use it anyway.)

I tried it out and it doesn't look too bad, I'll add it as an option in a future version.

9 9 excellent!!! Now that Kickoff can perform calculations and conversions, along with these new possibilities of views, it is very close - if it is no longer :) - of being PERFECT. However, I personally would love an extra option to visualize all the applications such as the Plasma full screen Dashboard, the Unity8 or Dolphin launcher by grouping each item and labeling the headings with the initial letter. If I can find the code necessary to make it happen, I will share it. You have done a great job! Thank you!!!

This is a great idea! Works wonders when you have plenty of favs. Works great on 5.16.4 here.

5.17.0.1 2 months ago

1. default configuration is now set to 2 columns
2. columns count can now be set to 'always maximum count', or be incremented as columns fill up.
3. updates from upstream and some my fixes:
3.A. restore favorites order when dragging an item outside of the menu
3.B. reordering tabs fixes:
3.B.a. reordered tabs no longer slide in from wrong directions
3.B.b. switching between tabs using keyboard correctly handles reordered tabs
3.B.c. known issue: Search tab now slides in from the left side
4. pinning an item to Task Manager no longer closes the menu
4.A. known issue(?): it won't close the menu on 'Open New Window' and other context menu actions and I'm still undecided if that's the behavior I want.

5.16.3.2 4 months ago

- move Favorites view settings to a separate settings page
- support for labels under icons
- 1 column view fully replicates the look of the default kickoff list view
- code cleanup
