If no ribbons and toolbar solution as it is now are not solutions, then what
Whats wrong with these solutions? Table/Graphic bar can appear when clicking
certain object.
It's better when the toolbars allways take same space and don't resize if
you click to different thing  / different toolbar appears. That's why ribbon
is good.

Oh no,

please no such "ribbons" like in M$EUR Office!!

In my opinion the best solution is already implemented in LibreOffice
and should be improved:

   * The menu bar with main functionality always stays in the same position
   * If I click into a table the table-bar appears
   * If I click on a graphic the graphic-bar appears
   * If I click into a bullet-point list the bullet-point-bar appears

This is way more effective than the M$-variant where the user has to
click on ribbons/tabs all the time and never knows if the required
function hides behind "Review", "Insert" or "Design"...

Where is going LibreOffice? I think it is pointless to argue now about
shadow or whatever. First thing whta we need to do is to make future
of LibreOffice, one and only mockup, where developers can look how it
look alike and then take their decisions. And I think that should be our
next goal. What point it is to make 2 or 4 sided shadow now if we don't
where LibreOffice is going.

Some mockup/design examples:

Other examples:

If we don't do this, then it is taking much more time developers to make
things work.

(And a lot of people have told me that they don't use
beacuase they don't like how it looks.)
