I just upgraded to (Windows) and I am not happy to 
see that the worksheet selection buttons now look like 
columns instead of folder tabs. Was there any logic behind 
this change or is this change for the sake of change? How 
does this make Calc more useable? What problem were users 
having that this change solved?

Sorry for the rant, but I am getting tired of unnecessary 
changes. I see this happening in all software, not just LO. 
I do appreciate the product and all the hard work that goes 
into it.


Sorry, but fully shown in the  4.4 release notes

since January.

/Tab changes

Sheet tabs (Calc) and layer tabs (Draw) were moved to an independent row and
are no longer displayed next to the horizontal scrollbar. As many visual
styles under Linux (in addition to the default OS X configuration) use very
thin scrollbars, these rendered the tabs too small to be clickable and, most
importantly, readable.

The tabs have an updated, flatter look./

You can read the rational and dev actions on  tdf#36772
<>  --UI: Sheet
tabs appear too small because LibreOffice has problems with certain themes
or does not force a minimim hight for tabs

And some counter discussion on  tdf#87684
<>  -- UI: Calc
sheet tabs and horizontal scroll bar are now wasting twice the space

Point is, this is nothing new or exceptional, the change was implemented Aug
2014.   If you'd like to avoid such unpleasantness, perhaps you should
invest a little of your own time and check out some of the more current
builds spun out by the project TinderBox's at
