The sidebar [...] encourages the user to do direct formatting
The sidebar is no /more/ encouraging than the existing toolbars. This, and
other concerns about the sidebar encouraging the use of direct formatting
can be addressed by enhancement fdo#65351
Sidebar should be redesigned, merging Sidebar, Styles and Formatting and
Navigator into one panel.
This is already the case. There are buttons down the side to select the
Now it is possible to open Sidebar, S&F and Navigator separately.
The idea of launching/retrieving the various panels and perhaps subpanels
to/from the sidebar is a central issue raised by Mirek.
All Buttons should be rearranged, giving users more horizontal space.
A better idea would be to simply improve the wrapping capability so that the
sidebar could be set to a required width and have the content more elegantly
adjust automatically. This will be contingent on the content in panels.
Buttons and icons (e.g., Properties, Gallery, Master Pages panels) are
easier to wrap, while list entries (e.g., Styles and Formatting, Navigator,
Custom Animation, Slide Transition panels) have a minimum width requirement.
Best wishes, Owen.
