Here goes some features proposals to improve LibreOffice UI.
I Wrote most of this a long ago for OpenOffice and the screenshots are really
old but i think everything still apply to LibreOffice.
- Create a popdown menu like the one of the "new" button but in the "open"
button in which will apear the recently opened documents.
Delphi and Lazarus(lazarus.freepascal.org) already have something like
- join the alignment buttons in one button with a popdown menu like coler
choser button. You also see this in WordPerfect.
- Create themes for the organization of menus and buttons. Examples of themes
could be: "MS Offce, WordPerfect Office, OpenOffice.org,
OpenOffice.org 1.x. This way people could change the layout to the one they are
more used to, and the learning curve becomes small. WordPerfect
Office already have something like this.
- Make possible to dock some windows in the rigth or/and left side of the
main window like in CoreDraw and like the screenshot that goes attached
to this mail. One tab should be created automaticaly for each window and note
like i did, I just created a toolbar. The left-sidebar of Konqueror also does
this. Also make the options on the screenshot always available on the right
side and remove them from the toolbar.
- Create something like Perfect Expert.
- Rewrite the bibliography manager ui... Check Word 2007 bibliography manager
as an example.
Most of this feature are based in Corel WordPerfect Office(till 11, didn't
tested lastest version) witch is much easy to use than MS Office, please look
more to worperfect.
I know people that used MS Offce some years and when started using wordperfect
said that it is much easier.
Lotus Symphony is a good example as well.
Now I only use and recoment LibreOffice but i miss some feature and usability.
Sorry for my bad english but i'm Portugese.
