Description Aaron Rainbolt 2022-06-24 10:35:37 UTC
Setting version as "master" since my version is newer than all of the other versions in the list.

KDE makes it quite easy to resize widgets that are placed on the desktop. However, it's not currently possible to resize widgets placed in the panel. Some of us find the current size of some of the widgets (like the Color Picker) to be uncomfortable when placed in the panel, so it would be handy if there was some way to resize them.

1. Right-click on the panel, and click "Enter Edit Mode".
2. Increase the panel height to 72.
3. Click "Add Widgets...".
4. Select "Color Picker", and drag it onto the panel.

There's no way to resize the widget when placed in the panel.

EXPECTED RESULT (more like "desired result" in this instance)
There should be some way to resize the widget.

Linux/KDE Plasma: KDE neon Unstable Edition
KDE Plasma Version: 5.25.80
