Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-10 14:58:22 UTC
We have split and group buttons (buttons with menus) in the toolbar, sidebar, and start center, but they are exposed on Linux as only a push button, when they should be exposed as a menu button, so that screen readers can distinguish between the two types.

Other apps do this by having a push button and a toggle button as two separate controls.
