(updating the bug title as apparently this issue affects all windows with titles)
Summary: Titles in titlebar are not vertically centered

+Vlad who worked on this

+Alcor/Glen. I believe the wish form UX was to have no titles in any window currently, correct?

I have no control over the title text positioning. It is wherever the window manager put it.

See C3 for the action item here. I believe UX wants us to not set a title if I am not mistaken? Glen/Alcor can you confirm or deny so this can become actionable?

Won't dropping the <title> leave a blank entry in the context menu for this item in the launcher? I saw this happen last week when we didn't have a title - see  Issue 147629  and the screenshot attached.

You don't set the title in the filemanager and you were able to set the context menu title. Shouldn't the same be possible here?

Well, this is tricky. If I open the Audio Player window the same way I open the Video Player I would not be able to set its position (or at least it would be more difficult), plus Ash would remember the Audio player position and size and use them as a default when opening the next Files app window which is very ugly.

Sounds like two paths are forming...

a) Remove <title> but this seems tricky (Comment 8)
b) Keep <title> in there, but make it vertically aligned center (seems like an Aura bug)

(a) seems preferable for our app. Seems like we should fix (b) anyway because it might impact other apps.

Given the complexity of (a), I'd vote we go for (b) in M23.

There is no simple fix, moving to M24.

Steven/Jenny, do you have cycles to look into moving the title up a bit in 23 if that would be a simple change? Sounds like removing title is going to be a trickier issue.

This is a stop-gap, we still need to update apps that use this title.

For discussion, another example of title usage is the "Select a file to open" title in the Open File dialog.  There's no good place to put that text prompt in the dialog, and if we do away with it the Open File dialog looks almost identical to the standalone Files app.

The dialogs are eventually going towards the Google-Dialog style (behind a flag right now) if I remember correctly so this is a different issue.

I have a patch that removes the text and the icon from the Audio Player window:

Is this what we want?

this looks good - thanks. When it becomes apps v2 it will lose the titlebar all together so not showing the title now is reasonable. If we want a title then, the app needs to render it itself

Can we mark this as fixed?
