Bright side of LibreOffice

LibreOffice has a very useful sidebar so it’s time to make them shiny even more. I made an proposal for an sidebar upgrade.

Sidebar layout proposal

Layout 1 vs Layout 2

LibreOffice use two different Sidebar layouts

  1. left: where widgets are in two columns and the label is above the widget
  2. right: where the labels are left and the widgets right

I’m happy with both layouts, but I would prefer to have for one specific task only one Layout.

  • For example, the text sections will be visible when you select text and when you write text in a table, so it should be natural that both sections use the same layout as you can see in the screenshot.
  • On the right there is a drawing selected so all sections should have the same layout as you can see in the left screenshot. If you think, true but where is the change request, start your LibreOffice and check out the sidebar.

I already start to write bug report’s for so that everybody can give transparent feedback.

So I hope to get some feedback the global [META] bug to see the improvement will be BUG 103459
