Description q1253328221 2021-04-27 13:42:23 UTC
When there are profiles created by user, float the mouse on the "New Tap" button, and konsole'll display the list of profiles. The user can specify one to create new tap with.
When there's no profile except the default, float the mouse on the "New Tap" button, and konsole displays nothing. Then the user can't create new tap. (though Ctrl+Shift+T still works)

I can reproduce this using the "File=>New Tab" menu item.  The "New Tab" button on the main toolbar works OK.

Can confirm as well:

- start konsole
- ensure there is just **one** profile (e.g. "Default [read-only]" with a new user)

## Toolbar button

- enable the toolbar, if it's hidden (Settings -> Toolsbars Shown -> Main Toolbar)
- **long** press the "new tab" button; this would (with more than one profile) cause the menu to open, showing all of the profiles
- instead, the button is highlighted, as if the menu is open; clicking on the button now does nothing
- as Paul Worrall mentions, just clicking (not long-clicking) on "new tab" button works ok

## File Menu

- click File, then hover over New Tab> menu item
- normally, this would cause the sub-menu to open, showing all of the prtofiles
- instead, nothing happens at all (because there's just one profile)

A possibly relevant merge request was started @ https://invent.kde.org/utilities/konsole/-/merge_requests/474

Submitted the above merge request.

A better fix would be for the "File > New Tab" menu item to become clickable when there is only one profile.

Fix missing new-tab menu when only one profile exists

Sub-menu will always be displayed in "File>New Tab" and "New Tab" button,
even if there is only one profile to display (the built-in default).

This fixes not being able to create a new tab from "File>New Tab" menu and
long-pressing on the new tab toolbar button.
