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
LibreOffice use two different Sidebar layouts
- left: where widgets are in two columns and the label is above the widget
- 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.
- Consistent alignment for Image BUG 136101 and Position and Size BUG 136099
- with consistent widget usage BUG 136125
- New effect section where glow, shadow, soft edge will be grouped together BUG 136073
- Style commands for writer BUG 136072
- New Sections for 3d settings BUG 136145 and Fontwork BUG 136140
- Remove separate list section in impress/draw BUG 136075
So I hope to get some feedback the global [META] bug to see the improvement will be BUG 103459
