The current way of accessing settings shortcuts and quick actions by swiping down in events view page is inconvenient to me. Assuming the phone is locked, I have to double-tap, enter the unlock code, swipe left/right and then swipe down to finally access the shortcuts page. (I know I can bind the 'swipe from left' gesture directly to events view but this has other problems) I just thought, what if this page was the third part of the carousel concept? Jolla phone and Jolla C won't be getting the "partner space" page anyway. Accessing the shortcuts would then be one swipe away from the home screen... I know it will probably never be implemented by Jolla themselves, but does anyone know if this behavior can be patched? I haven't tried it myself yet!

Some partners will have the partner space tho; where would it be placed in that case?

You can find some patches on OpenRepos to make settings shortcuts more accessible, including Quick setting on power menu. Since ambiences are to change color and sound settings and were due to have more setting options in the future, I thought the best place for setting shortcuts would be somewhere near by, i.e. top menu.

@tortoisedoc Indeed, that's why I asked if it can be patched in Jolla1 and Jolla c which won't have partner space! @AliNa I have seen these patches but I didn't find them very practical.. perhaps I'll give them another go..
