Thanks for doing this Sigrid

One comment is that maybe next time, not have the spell check on for
these. It just make it a little more difficult for evaluation. We really
need the comments from the documentation team people on the look and
feel for our documents and especially for print.
I did those screenshots in a very quick session, just for testing purposes. I don't plan to reuse 
any of those pictures for the user guides. On the ones for the guides I will disable the 
spellcheck. :)

At this point, we
should try to accommodate the comments from Jean Hollis Weber on this
topic and try to find a theme OR create our own theme for this purpose.
Maybe none of the "pre-packaged" themes will work for what we need.
I'm not sure that I agree with your statement here. Bernhards goal was to have a theme that is widely 
available, that looks nice and modern. If we can modify one of the prepackaged themes that would mean, 
that many people have access to it ->  hopefully more people able to help with screenshots for the 
different materials needed (website, docu, marketing). Also, the pre-packaged themes are easy to 
install (see your own post about your difficulties with getting the XP silver theme to work with your 


Hi Sigrid

I think the goal of the theme was to have one suitable for screenshots and for print. This is the tool we are seeking for the website and documentation team. Of course looking modern and clean would be also involved in this search.

My point about creating our own theme, if we cannot find a suitable one, is that we can develop it, maintain it, and submit it to the and sites and this will make it available through the "KDE/Gnome system settings" for anyone's use. It just means that we would be in control of the theme and all of its accompanying components (mouse cursor, colours etc) but that if we chose, we could issue updates and not be dependent on any other individuals for the upkeep. Not to mention being in control of any licencing issues with the theme.

IMO, if we do find a theme, if at all possible through the design team, we could decide to adopt the theme, and, if the licence permits it, rename it, and, from then on, take on the task of maintaining the theme. This way, again, we are in control of our quality assurance as far as the screenshots are concerned.

From a marketing point of view, if the theme were to incorporate the "LibreOffice" name, it would be a plus for us, from the point of view of branding. People would then talk about adopting the "LibreOffice" theme or "LibreOffice ScreenShot" theme or ... Getting our name out in the wild will get us more brand recognition.
