Citrus: Prominent styles

Picking up on the color code discussion from the last post, here’s a usability experiment that utilizes color codes for making styles more prominent and easier to click:

Besides making it easier to target the buttons for styles, it also separates two context bars from each other (like the “Text” and “Paragraph” bars in this mockup) and makes it apparent what type of thing is selected. It also makes it obvious what kind of application you’ve just launched, since Impress shows a Slide context bar by default and Draw shows a Canvas context bar. I haven’t had time to mock these up, though, so here is a barebones Slide context bar just to show what it would look like.
