For me it’s basically impossible to use the mouse to select any “bookmarked” program from the launcher. I click the icon to open the launcher, then if I move the cursor diagonally one of the section on the left side will be selected and the bookmarked programs will disappear. So I have to carefully move my cursor in such a way as to avoid the trap-region on the left, and reach my target region on the right side without unintentionally touching any of the sections I’m not looking for:
In practice, I suppose nobody ever tested this interface with a mouse. Perhaps they’re using a touch screen, or just their keyboard. Nevertheless, my solution is simple: how do I get the previous launcher back?
