Hi Astron!

I have started a Whiteboard that is about weeding out the options. The
proposal is far from finished (maybe three percent), but already the
wiki page is getting to be very long and unwieldy.
Does anyone have good Layout/structuring ideas for this case?
Especially, if those ideas are easy to implement with wiki mark-up,
I'd love to hear.
The proposal starts here: .
Click on the "Kill" link to get to the first part of the actual proposal.

Wow, that's a *very* good start ...

Please note:
* I am not really looking for too much feedback from others right now
(but feel free)

I hold back ;-) Just tell whether when some feedback is more helpful. I
found some minor description issues, e.g. the tooltips appearance isn't
configurable, but the length of the description (but since LibO doesn't
ship the "offline" help package per default, this checkbox does nothing
as far as I know ... another issue, not related).

* it is /not/ linked to from the Whiteboards page on purpose
(Reason for both: this work is not even half complete so far.)

Sounds very good - but we may add those whiteboards and mark them
accordingly (to be honest: I also created some half-finished
descriptions, since developers were not interested anymore ... so I
moved to other topics as well).

One thing that might be related - I once started the "Improved Options"
during the OOo UX times. That time, we didn't care about the single
options (that would have been a follow-up activity), but the usability
of the options panel.

All information, requirements, ... are here:

It's already a bit old, but maybe migrating some content (I can have a
look what authors contributed) may be worth the effort. To me, it nicely
corresponds to your work.

One last comment: We also have some additional options in the
configuration files. So if we decide to "kill" things, it might be
possible to move them "out of sight", or in the configuration files - if
required in rare cases.
