We should be able to continue scrolling pulley menu somehow if our finger reaches max distance. [released]

After release of the "Mitäkuuluu", i realized that i'm always starting the pull from middle of the screen, which results in me not reaching the 10th option. I suggest that after users finger reaches edge of the screen, the pulley menu comes out completely, like after pulling it "over"

yes, currently for some pulley menus, you need to make sure to start the gesture from the top of the screen, or you can't pull it out completely before reaching the bottom.

maybe a limit of 5 or 6 six entries could be a solution.

This happens to me constantly, trying to do something in the pulley menu but I am not able to reach the option since my finger has reached the bottom of the screen.

I found some king of solution myself. You can flick the menu for any distance, and it will come out completely.

also, I learned that the fact that it stays rolled out makes sense in that 1) you can see all the options and 2) you can select one by tapping, not just releasing while it's selecting. Given that is stays out, it's also useful for it to be flickable. Learning a new UI concept :-)

Pretty sure this has been possible for a while now so I'll close this issue.
