It seems that the main problem is command duplication, my thoughts are as
Sidebar should be redesigned, merging Sidebar, Styles and Formatting and
Navigator into one panel. Now it is possible to open Sidebar, S&F and
Main panel of the sidebar should consist Styles functionality in a very user
All Buttons should be rearranged, giving users more horizontal space.
Sidebar takes up too much space, and this can be reduced at least to half
with proper arrangement of buttons. Plus Sidebar tab options should be moved
to top as well, instead the side of the screen.
Effective scrolling should be implemented on the sidebar, currently it is
not possible to scroll using trackpad. When scrolling is fixed, it is OK
to list all commands vertically, scrolling would not be a very UX issue.
When formatting toolbar is disabled, content-specific toolbars continue to
pop-up, causing distractions and command duplication both on the sidebar and
And most of all, it is imperative that we start working on this as soon as
possible to get everything merged into 4.3. Otherwise most likely we will
have a half-broken Sidebar by the next release as well. This is is the
utmost chance to give LO a very functional UI and a good chance to move away
from OOo design direction.
Moving formatting functions to sidebar will allow us to use the title bar
with basic controls like open, save etc. and give the chance to include Mac
or Gnome friendly design elements, also opening space for a nice search bar.
Formatting toolbar can always be docked under this bar when desired.
