group folder icon

SUMMARY
The visual indication of the grouping of windows is not very nice and not very informative. The + sign looks like something foreign.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Use window grouping in the system 

OBSERVED RESULT
The + sign looks uninformative.

EXPECTED RESULT
We need a function to turn off the visual display of the grouping of windows on the panel. Or reworking it into something convenient by default.

SOFTWARE/OS VERSIONS

macOS: 
Linux/KDE Plasma: 
(available in About System)

Qt Version: 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

It is these little things that make up the convenience of use. They are worth taking care of to fix them.
I apologize for my English, if it seemed to you unsightly (google translate).

That's a pretty nice mockup. I'd like that too.

Implementation would be a bit tricky since the current plus sign indicator is a theme graphic. So if we simply stopped displaying it, we would be ignoring graphics that theme makers have created.

What we could maybe do is use your proposed new appearance as a fallback in cases where the theme doesn't supply a graphic for this, and then remove it from the Breeze theme.
