Hi Paul,

I have been using Draw quite a bit lately and these thoughts came up.

1. Move Page Change |< < > >| to Status Bar next to Slide 1/1

I don't like that idea, because the Status Bar already has not enough space to show the essential things correctly
I might have more screen real-estate than others and hadn't realized it's a problem. I did notice that when shrinking the main window, Status Bar does not entirely go under the Pages Panel which is real-estate lost. That may be because the panel is right justified and not left or center.

Then again, if the Status Bar where a part of right side selection of Panes and set as default to display it would be to the user to maximize their screen usage.

2. Stack Status Bar above Properties panel. Eliminates lost space on
    bottom of window and is one less place to move eyes to.

A "Status Bar" is always at the bottom. Do you know any application where it is not at the bottom?
While true, this moves it to "heads up" location.
My glasses probably have a lot to do with it. Focus stays with left/right eye movement and changes when looking down.
3. Move "Tabs" to old Status Bar location centered.    Allows for more
    Tabs and/or larger text of Tabs.

I would like to see, that custom configure of the font size is possible, but disagree, that another location would be better.
Now that I think about it a little more, it might be better to move the "Tabs" above as well. Never look down. The Tabs bar is thin and wouldn't take up much room. This maybe a habit from using Lotus Word Pro years ago where Tabs are above like in cabinet drawer.

Maybe it should just be an option. Give screen geography to the user.

4. Tabs have a "Visible" interaction. When making multi-level
    drawing, quickly turning on/off layers assists in selection and
    correction process.    Using one click instead of three would be a
    great time saver.    Suggest Open/Closed Eye icon.

I agree, that the Tabs should get more functions. Ctrl-Click and Alt-Click are candidates for more function. I would like to see locked/unlocked. The current visible/invisible is already an improvement compared to old OOo. For more discussions on that topic read
Thanks for the reference.

5. The ability to Flip Pages panel with Properties panel.    Being more
    comfortable as a left handed person would be nice.

I'm not sure, whether I understand you. It is already possible to drag the "Page Pane" to the right and the "Sidebar" to the left. What are you looking for?
Allow Properties to the left, Page to the right.
I spend more time using the Properties Panel than Pages Panel.
Since I'm a left to right reader, I go more naturally to that position than right.

Kind regards

Thanks for responding.
Have a good weekend.
