I've just upgraded to Kibana 6.5 and was excited to see the K7 UI design as an option, so I tried it out.
It's a very sleek and pretty, so that's great. However I'm afraid that this is going to be a step backwards for UX. Not sure where the best place is to give feedback?
Much of my workflow involves switching between the Dashboard, Visualise and Discover tabs. Now everything that used to take one click now takes two clicks. For example to switch between Dashboard, Visualise and Discover now requires a click to open up the menu and then another click to navigate to the tab I want.
If this change must go ahead then can we have an advanced option to keep the sidebar? This seems like the search for a sleeker design by compromising on functionality.
