This is a great applet. I however have one suggestion: it would be nice that if one select All Programs, whether you start an app or close the menu, re-opening the menu should be back with favorites. Or maybe at least make it configurable.

The MATE-Menu Layout of this applet has this behaviour.

I tried both Mate and Stark menu none of them gave me this behavior.

MATE-Layout: Remembers which section (»All Programs« or »Favorites«) was open and shows this section next time you're opening the menu.
Stark-Layout: Always shows the »Favorites« section on menu opening.

If that's not the case please file a new issue on the following page: https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-spices-applets/issues

It works well as you said with Stark layout. Don't know why it did not work before.
Nice applet. I like it.

This fine applet seems to be having problems on my Mint 18.2 Cinnamon system. For details, please see the bug report here: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/6739#issuecomment-31871833

Thank you for this menu. Do you plan on adding win10-like menu layout? Would love that applet even more. Thanks again :).

No it hasn't. If you are looking for a menu applet with fuzzy search, try the Sane Menu by nooulaif: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/258

Does this have fuzzy search?

To solve the 'Super-R' issue opening the wrong menu, you have to restart Cinnamon ! (Alt+f2 then type r and enter).

I like this menu a lot, but when I press the the 'Super-R' button, it still opens the default menu and not this one, even if the default menu applet isn't activated. Any idea on how to solve this ?

A lot to like with this menu, but for me there are a couple of deal breakers that stop it being my first choice of alternative to the stock menu. I don't like that the menu doesn't maintain a consistent width moving through program categories and it suffers some issues with brief text corruption scrolling trough program categories on my system. Stock menu does the same, but there are other choices on Spices that don't.

"The menu doesn't maintain a consistent width moving through program categories..."
That was a bug. The menu should has constant width now.

"... and it suffers some issues with brief text corruption scrolling trough program categories on my system."
I'm not sure, what you mean by "brief text corruption". But scrolling through categories has been improved as well.

Hi NikoKrause.

The text corruption issues seem to be cured with Mint 18.2/Cinnamon 3.4 and the menu width is all good now. Have been using this for a few weeks now as my default. All good. Thank-you.
