Hi Jean, all,
sorry, Sigrid, you seem right: There is no chance to get a common
agreement on how screenshots should look like in a reasonable time...

Not sure if you read this but maybe you should take some time. Bernhard has
summed up all of the reasons that were proposed on uniformization on this
discussion thread in a recent post. Just in case you missed it, you may find
think he has put it all very eloquently and as plain as possible. I think
the reasons for writing up protocols are overwhelming.
I respectfully disagree with Bernhard that there needs to be the
uniformity between marketing screenshots and documentation
In my eyes it is no need, it just have some advantages.
But if consistency in general is understood as uniformity or
uniformization and standardization LibreOffice should avoid, I can't
follow this approach.
I already stated that there might be reasons to have two different
specifications for documentation an marketing screenshots, if there
would be a need for two different themes.
I understood your previous replies differently, but I might be wrong.
And while it may be desirable to have uniformity among
the documentation screenshots, I don't think it's a big deal that they
are not uniform. We can develop the uniformity as we update the docs
for other reasons.
So you want to tell people to create the first set of screenshots with
different themes and work on them in a second step again?
That said, I completely agree that having guidelines for documentation
screenshots is a good thing. Note: guidelines, not rules. Marketing is
a different matter: much more important there.
We never discussed rules - even the branding guidelines are no rules
(but they are highly recommended to use).
Every contributor can include the screenshots (s)he wants in any
specific contribution. But if there is a help available to produce
consistent screenshots, I'd like to be led to this help when I start to
If you and the rest of the documentation team are as opposed to a
consistent look-and-feel in the LibreOffice documentation as David
Nelson, we don't need to discuss this topic any more or vote on it at all.
But if you think, a guideline ("we recommend ...") leading to similar
screenshots in our docs would be a good thing, please let's define the
theme, so it can be used on our wiki and we can end this discussion.
