Citrus UI: Review

UPDATE: Here’s a more current version.

—————————–

Hi everyone,
I still don’t have time to work on Citrus yet, but, as in the last days I’ve been getting many more hits than usual, here’s a list of all the important Citrus UI posts I’ve done so far:

Citrus UI: the first post

How styles work + how menus look

How the menus are organized

Managing windows through LibO menu (early prototype)

Fizz: small toolbars that show up with selection

How you can select pages

How you can select paragraphs

How you can select and edit tabs

Search

Replacing the splash screen

    Thank you. :)

    I especially like how the menus look and work. And the small toolbar that show up with selected text.

      :) Thanks.
      Unfortunately, I can’t code, so this is all just a concept for now.
      As the whole LibreOffice team is just getting ready to release the initial version (the design team is currently finishing up icons and branding), I expect UI discussions to take place right after the first release, when there’s a lot less time pressure. It’d be great if you joined the list.

    I honestly think this is the way Libreoffice should go. Different and better.

    Please let us know when coding begins… and please make them begin coding!

    Be proud of your work and fight for it.
    There will be many of us supporting you.

      :) Thanks for your support.

      The design/UI team is just kicking off — you can follow the progress here. I’m hoping that we’ll get to a UI overhaul with steps 6 and 7 and maybe a few UI fixes with step 5.

    Hello I am working on a project to create a native gnome office suite work at the moment is focused on the word processor.
    I was wondering if you would be interested in helping with the graphic design work along with the UI design work.

    Please feel free to contact me

    Kind Regards Dead Peasant

      Hi,
      I would definitely be interested in contributing. I don’t consider myself to have much artistic talent but I’ll help out where I can. :)

    considering your blog is showing off a lot of pictures, perhaps you could:
    1) choose a fluid theme replacement, which will let me absorb all the available space in the screen
    2) once you’ve done that, you can replace with bigger thumbnails, which don’t mean I have to click/navigate each separate image
    3) install a plugin which will let me lightbox the entire gallery of images

    right now, it’s a pain to navigate and view each thumbnail. just saying as a potential improvement you could make in a half hour which would improve the wordpress blog a LOT
