How should I report minor defects?

Post by shokuzai » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:31 am

Hello, thank you for the great software, Pierre and everyone contributing.
I have noticed several minor defects, which may or may not be counted as bugs, for example:

No Wraparound in List View
To reproduce:
1. Go to Browser and click View > View as > List.
2. Press and hold the up/down arrow key.
Actual behaviour: it stops at the top/bottom.

No Wraparound when Holding Down Ctrl
To reproduce:
1. Go to Browser and click View > View as > Thumbnails.
2. Press and hold Ctrl + Left/Right Arrow.
Actual behaviour: it stops at the left/right edge.

Should I report such minor defects at all?
How should I report them, In one post or in seperate posts?
Where should I report them, in Suggestions or Bug reports?

So, does they deserve reporting?

If you feel that the interface design could be improved, then yes...

Whether they should be considered as small bugs or as suggestions, they can then be discussed.
