Hi Olivier,

Some personal thoughts on your proposed LO7 template, in advance of the team meeting to be held later.

I think that switching the Text Body paragraph style from a sans serif font to a serif font is an important decision which shouldn’t be made without proper consideration of its impact. We certainly shouldn’t commit to that change just because it distinguishes LO7 from LO6. Will users of the guides find them more or less readable and attractive after the font change?If the team decide to use the serif font for the Text Body style, would it be better to use the same font family for the character styles? This would avoid mixing sans serif and serif characters in a single sentence.On the first page of the template, I preferred the chapter number, chapter title and chapter subtitle lines to be left justified, as in the LO6 template.

Subject: [libreoffice-documentation] Proposal for 7.x guide template

Hi Team

I have created a template candidate for our next 7.0 Guide books
available in the cloud at

This is work in progress and comment are welcome. I deliberately changed
some styles...

* Changed text body font to serif
* Deleted unused custom styles in template file
* rebuilt the heading style hierarchy where headings inherit from
Heading paragraph style
* New logo/banner on top of chapter
* Page margins inner/outer values to allow binding.
* New Tip/Note/Warning icons/background (from Help)
* No new style, no style rename
* Suggestion for Heading colors based on Module colors
* Reworked number & bullet list position settings.

Glad to discuss items here or in the Team meeting this Thursday June
4th, 18:00 UTC

Kind regards
