Hi Mirek,

sorry that it took so long to reply.

Regarding the color schemes: I don't know how exactly that works, but Christoph mentiones them in the commented Wiki pages he sent me. I guess one can import an xml that contains the information that is displayed in the 'formatting' window.

The claud button does indeed pull templates from the online repository.

I think it would be better to keep the Help button in the bottom row since this is how it works in every other dialogue in LO. I think VCL even arranges those buttons to fit the standard of each OS.

In my opinion, the single click to select is a bit complicated, at least on the desktop. E.g. the details are only shown if a certain template is selected. But such behaviour might be implemented and be enabled depending whether LO runs on a PC or a tablet.

Kind Regards

Hi Mirek, *

Thanks for your input. After thinking about it I do agree with the points
you mentioned. I made a new mock-up, similar to the first one. It puts the
focus on previews, document details are shown in tootips and the
category-selector has been shrinked to a drop-down menu.

Excellent! :)
Could you remove the tooltips and just show the document details at the
bottom? By covering the thumbnail, a tooltip detracts from the browsing
experience, especially when the info it's showing isn't very important to
picking a template.

I added the options to select (color/font/...) schemes...

How exactly would this work?

Also, what does the "cloud" button above do? Does it pull in templates from
the web and add them to the grid?

...and to use an existing document as template/style.

Could you move this button to the top toolbar as an "import template"
button, right next to the "Create template"? While you're at it, could you
also move "Help" to the top toolbar?

It seems like you opted to go with double-clicking to open a template. As
double-click is unfriendly to touch-screen users and users of this dialog
will on most occasions want to simply choose a template (and not select it
to delete it), could you implement single-click to choose a template
instead? You could use a special toolbar button for selecion, like Gnome
  (See to get
an idea of how it works.)
