I do object to '('.  

Partly because I am tempted to think ')' will undo whatever it's other
pair did.

$ is indeed better than @.  Remember `$' is used in conjunction with
selective display.

I object to M-o.  The verb `Omit' is generally not used.  It has bad
connotations.  (My mom will spank me if I omitted something)

Let's omit omit and stick with show or hide.

`@' was proposed by Jambunathan, not I.  I have no special objection
to `@' instead of `(', however.

But I'm not convinced that it is good to confuse hiding stuff in
Dired with outline-minor-mode hiding.

> So, maybe @ should be a prefix key for "hiding stuff", in which we
> can place key bindings for "omit" and for "details".

I don't object to that.  As long as the two, hiding columns and
hiding rows, are kept clear and separate, no problem.

But there is really more to it than that.  There are at least these
hide/show commands in Dired:

$    (`dired-hide-subdir')
M-$  (`dired-hide-all')
(    (`dired-hide-details-mode')
M-o  (`dired-omit-mode')

It is good that each of these is quick, but yes, we could put them
all on a prefix key.  In that case, `M-o', `M-$', and `$' are also
good candidates for the prefix key.

We could have, for example:

M-o s  (`dired-hide-subdir')       - `s' for subdi
M-o S  (`dired-hide-all')          - `S' for subdirs
M-o c  (`dired-hide-details-mode') - `c' for columns
M-o r  (`dired-omit-mode')         - `r' for rows

No Shift key needed for them, except for the one that boosts `s'.

FWIW, Dired+ adds these commands, which could also be added to the
list, perhaps with these bindings:

M-o m  (`diredp-omit-marked')      - `m' for marked
M-o u  (`diredp-omit-unmarked')    - `u' for unmarked

Here are their (trivial) definitions:

(defun diredp-omit-marked ()
  "Omit lines of marked files.  Return the number of lines omitted."
  (interactive)
  (let ((old-modified-p  (buffer-modified-p))
        count)
    (when (interactive-p) (message "Omitting marked lines..."))
    (setq count  (dired-do-kill-lines nil "Omitted %d line%s."))
    (set-buffer-modified-p old-modified-p) ; So no `%*' appear in mode-line=
.
    count))

(defun diredp-omit-unmarked ()
  "Omit lines of unmarked files.  Return the number of lines omitted."
  (interactive)
  (let ((old-modified-p  (buffer-modified-p))
        count)
    (dired-toggle-marks)
    (message "Omitting unmarked lines...")
    (setq count  (diredp-omit-marked))
    (dired-toggle-marks)                ; Marks all except `.', `..'
    (set-buffer-modified-p old-modified-p) ; So no `%*' appear in mode-line=
.
    count))

> [=E2=9C=93] Show details

I almost suggested that too (but with title case: `Show Details').
I probably should have mentioned it.  I did not because of the
considerations below, but I'm glad you have brought it up now.

I have no objection to that, but in that case we should perhaps
do likewise for other toggles in Dired, such as `Toggle Image
Thumbnails in This Buffer' (which also happens to be a bad name,
IMO).

Another consideration is that the use of a check box for a toggle
often corresponds to an actual user option, i.e., a variable that
one can customize.  And in fact, I believe, that was the original
sense of  menu `Options', hence the name.  There are notable
exceptions, such as `Tool-bar' on `Options' > `Show/Hide', which
do not correspond to options (and which perhaps should not be on
menu `Options'?).

Another consideration is perhaps that, so far, menu `Options',
which is a main place where we use such check boxes, seems to
be limited to global toggles, not buffer-local ones (didn't check
them all though).  Likewise menu `Printing', which is another
place where we use the check boxes heavily.  However, Dired menu
`Immediate' does have the buffer-specific `Toggle Image
Thumbnails in This Buffer'.

I don't know what the general policy/guideline is, if there is
one, wrt the use of check boxes.  Should they be limited to
user options?  Should they be limited to behavior that is global
and not buffer-specific?  Dunno.

Should we perhaps have a visual convention that makes clear
whether a particular toggle (a) is global or local and (b)
corresponds to an option or not?  Without that, users need to
use `C-h k' or mouseover :help to get more info about an item,
and unfortunately such info does not always answer the question
because it was written in a context where the answer was clear
enough without being explicit.

In sum, I would be OK with a `Show Details' check box on the
Dired `Immediate' menu, provided those who set the guidelines ;-)
think it fits wrt the above considerations (i.e., that it is
OK that it is for a minor mode, with no associated user option,
and that it is OK that it is buffer-local).

I agree that having a check box makes clear that the item is
a toggle.  That is a decided advantage, making for quicker
locating and identifying.  My only hesitation is the lack of
clarity for users wrt whether the toggle is for a customizable
variable and whether it is buffer-local or global.

Thanks again for bringing up the check-box question in this context.

How do you toggle a detail?  What does it mean?

`Toggle Hiding Details' (or `Toggle Showing Details') might be OK.

`Show/Hide Details' reflects the `Show/Hide' submenu of `Options'.

`Hide/UnHide Details' reflects item `Hide/UnHide Subdir' of the `Subdir'
menu in Dired (but UnHide is bad as written, for two reasons).

I prefer `Show/Hide Details' or `Hide/Show Details' (or `Show or Hide
Details' etc.), but the main point is that this item either shows hidden
details or hides the details if shown.  It does not just hide the details.

The menu item *toggles* the state.  It should not be called `Hide
Details'.

Either it should be called `Hide/Show Details' or the name should change
dynamically between `Hide Details' and `Show Details', depending on the
current state.
