I like this style but in my opinion it would be better to have this style only for mobile and the normal style for computer. Is it possible to acheive?

Thank you.

That's a good idea. Maybe there's a way to have an option in the ACP so that the administrator can decide to always move the icons into the menu or only when on mobile. I will look into it. :)

Let's keep it for the PC as well! It does unclutter the display window!

Yes, it won't be removed for desktops, I was rather thinking about an option in the UCP. Something like "Always display icons menu" and have it default to yes. If the user changes it to no, the icons are displayed in a menu only on mobile resolutions. Sounds good?

Not really, because if the user changes it to no, there is absolutely no indication that the icons will STILL be displayed on mobile resolutions.

This could be explained below the option.

Always display icons menu
If set to no the menu is only displayed on mobile resolutions.
