This was the Question asked..

Hey you all, I'm starting to make some scratches, but i need some
help with your ideas from your point of vue.

You knew the GUI of Microsoft's Office and the one Apple has done.
Have you some things you like to have also in the GUI of our app?

improve LO, I would suggest that now is not the time to be
entertaining ideas of rebuilding the wheel. We (an inclusive plural

Reading the question again I have to admit: it was a heavy answer on a
light question ;o))


Thanks for the reminder. :o))

All the best
