Ergonomic handling of GUI

Some noticed finenesses relating to the GUI:
a) The Behavior of vertical scrollbars in Recipewindow and in the Chatwindows when a click occurs between the slider and an up/down arrow is unexpected. It should jump one side and shows only the last/first line from the page shown before but now it jumps only a half side, so that the user has to search, where to focus his attention.
b) A mouseclick on arrows near scrollbars (Clashing Importance and scrollbars in recipes) repeats counts of the Scrollbarvalue very early (in Windows 7 and in Linux Mint cinnamon). Perhaps the scrollbars are too short or the a single mouseclick repeats faster than the mousebutton is released (faster than in the operation system settings).
c) The ergonomic of the GUI-handling is horrible because of far too much necessary mouseclicks and many wasted space/area for oversized buttons/windowframes/messagewindows.
Especially the lowering of the necessary mouseclicks and the design of some smaller elements would boost the ergonomics significant.
An mouseover over a menu item (Actions, Undo, ... , View, Menu) [and the (oversized) Buttons in the Selection Interface] should pop up the menu until the wanted last item is clicked.
If the menu has been opened by mouseover, the menu should automatic disappear with mouseout.
If the menu has been opened by mouseclick, the menu should remain open (as it is now) and closed by next mouseclick.
The same behavior is wanted for the menu buttons in the Selection Interface.
d) The description for the handling of selection in the Selection Interface should be retractable. A description for the handling of all the freeze options should be added, because there is no Button for freeze.
When I find the file with further notes on my computer, I will post in this theme.
