Title: Gnome Slab's More Applications not open another Window

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Drew Kwashnak (dragonbite)
Partner organization:

In the Gnome Slab, if the Application has not been pinned to the
Favorites you are forced to click "More Applications" and it opens up a
Maybe this could open a window like Windows XP does? Or can slide to
the side like KDE 4 does?
Something should be in place by default.  Is there something called
"Lancelot" which would apply here, or is just KDE?

Business case (Partner benefit): The opened window may get lost in Windows, can be easily
pushed behind something else or a pushy application that finally loads
may pop-up over it and otherwise be annoying.

+ I would like to see the 'more applications' being shown as an expansion
+ of the menu rather than a seperate window, maybe sub groups would be
+ required to break the list down: similar to KDE or the default GNOME
+ implementation. A button could also be present giving the option of
+ opening a seperate window. I have taken to opening applications via
+ 'Run Application', ALT+F2, rather than using the menu because of the
+ extra time searching through this extra window takes.
