Hi again, Christoph, all

@ Rafael: Did that help somehow? In my point-of-view, the requirements
for the Styles dialog are more important that what's available in terms
of UI elements. Personally, I'd say that if the Design Team comes up
with a good solution, there is some chance to convince some developers
to tweak "Local" items or to add "Unavailable" ones.

I re-read your e-mail and believe you're right in this point. It doesn't invalidate what's been discussed in the rest of your e-mail, but I believe it's another part of the work, and a more important one.

So this is some proposal: I'll study the documentation on UI elements, to see what's to it. It won't hurt, and will be useful later (for me, and for others if I'm able to gather it somehow and put it in the wiki -- again, not a promise).

Along with that, we could start a new place in the wiki to discuss this point. There are several things related to the Styles and Formatting window and its usability besides UI elements. One major one that occurs to me has been mentioned here before: the huge number of default styles. One can take a lot of time just to find his way among them.

These do not belong in the page Bernhard put up. I'll use that page to put the different elements that form my early mock-up to the Styles and Formatting window, but the usability goes further than that. I see not only graphical, but logical elements that need to be discussed, for example the inheritance system between styles, the import system (which concurs with the templates system, AFAIK), the tricky question involving the "default" style, just to mention a few. I'm not sure how to address this in the wiki, but will try to come up with something. Shouldn't be that hard though.

Sorry to throw these unconcluded ideas on the list, let's say it's a self-reminder if nothing better.
