SOFTWARE VERSION: (Control Panel > General > About product) 1.2009.41-10 STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: -tap the application menu in the upper left corner. In the bottom right corner is an icon labelled "More..." EXPECTED OUTCOME: -tap the application menu in the upper left corner. Use finger scrolling (up-finger motion) to see more applications that can be launched. Can scroll though in one view all the applications on the device. Jumping pages can be accomplished by side swipe motions. ACTUAL OUTCOME: - must tap the "More..." button to see more applications. Once in the "More" area, can scroll up and down on that page, but then need to tap outside to get to the main page. REPRODUCIBILITY: (always/sometimes/once) always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: None that affects this OTHER COMMENTS: The use of the "More..." button seems to be inconsistent with the rest of the UI. If multi-page support is required, perhaps sideways swipes of the screen can act as a page-up or page-down. As a user, I would expect to be able to scroll the entire list of apps in the main view.

I'm not entirely against this idea to be honest.
it would be nice to create categories too.
fixed in pr1.2. there wont be any categories. afaik this is not integrated yet. so i wont mark it as fixed. but i could be wrong about the timing. it might be alerady integrated.
(In reply to comment #2) > it would be nice to create categories too. > Categories can still be created by editing the menu files, the change to a flat menu is just a configuration file change.
Sorry for the bugspam but is this configurable or not? And if so where?
(In reply to comment #6) > Sorry for the bugspam but is this configurable or not? This will not be configurable through the User Interface, but by editing corresponding files on the device. Also see http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=442281&postcount=5
This has been fixed in the internal build version 2010.04-11 (Note: 2009/2010 is the year, and the number after is the week.) A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public update.) Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time. To answer popular followup questions: * Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance. * There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions. A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/view/undelayed_bugfix_releases_for_nokia_open_source_packages-002/
We agreed to do this after deciding to also allow reordering of the menu. This makes user able to put the most important items in the top, and thus, hopefully, next to never, have to scroll down at all.
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the fix will be available to users). Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
