Hey Christoph! :)
Well, concerning that, it is like many mountains that have been climbed since even before TDF went public ;-)
I can't imagine. The once time I passed by something like that was when I stayed away from internet during one month and my inbox almost exploded! :) huahauahaua Now I laugh... just NOW. :P

Oh, you English is just great, really! Personally, I'm also not "a foreign languages person", but it seems sufficient to survive here. At least, my skills improved over the years being with the community ... and if everybody would be perfect, who would believe that this is an international community? ;-)
Well, thank you! I'm learning English by my own account, so it's good to know that I'm on the right way. And you're right, who would believe?

However, I felt free to write a blog posting which will be soon available on the TDF Planet. Until then, here is the direct link:
Oh, it is very cool! I'm grateful for the nice words in your text and your effort to prepare the images! :D At least in In my notebook it takes a lot to just move a simple icon of 256px... :O I'm anxious to see the community feedback, even my contribution been little :) But it's how you said, the whole team done a great work! "As Florian would say ... *You all rock!"*

Cool! Now, we really need Björn and you talking to the community via the blog ... there is still a lot of marketing that is required to finally prove "UX and Usability" to be an important part of the LibreOffice development :-)
Björn, Paulo, do you both have a blog?
Well, I'm in! :D But answer your question is a bit hard... 'cause I actually have a blog, but it's a Shania Twain Fans Blog... :P :P ¬¬ Of course you mean a personal blog... (sorry, I could not to hold on). So, no, I have not a blog. I'm posting my workflow in my wiki user page currently. What do you suggest?

Without that much in-depth knowledge, I totally agree to your analysis. Maybe adding one minor additional thought - on the one hand, there are pretty common and rather simple tasks (inserting page numbers, inserting chapter names, referring to picture titles), and the more difficult ones (referring to database stuff). Concerning the latter, there may be people who are happy to simply enter field stuff - because it's efficient.
Good point, its true! I also had through about it (not too deep I admit) and I was tinking about that the last action performed by this dialog could be displayed when you call it again (I don't know if I make myself understandable). But you give me great idea (thank you!!!!!) right now! Maybe we can show the last actions performed in the first step just like shortcuts. [I'll discuss better about it in the appropriate topic to not pollute this one]

The current advantage: all tasks are handled via the same interface / workflow. So if you know how to do, it is efficient to apply the available knowledge for a variety of field types. The problem the wizard tries to address (in my understanding), is to address less experienced people who want to work with more difficult field types. Here, the correct result is more important than the number of steps.

So, if we change the behavior, we should also make sure that power users feel at home as well. Here, some people in the German community might help ...
Yeah, it's an important thing to keep on mind! I hope these people can help us, it would be great! :D

Thank you and everybody n this team! I'm very happy that everything is happen so fast. :) Its a bit scary actually. hahahaha
