Usability Issues (Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice UI should be tweaked, not reinvented)


Hi T.J. and all the others!

Discussing things like tweaking and re-inventing, I forgot about the
good defaults and all the things we can do right now. Moreover, Michael
pointed towards his "Easy Hacks" developers page that currently lacks
some usability stuff [1]. Time to change that?

What is currently missing is a collection of simple tasks that can be
prepared to be made available for developers.

It would also be considerably less work than completely redesigning
the UI from scratch. That is more time that could be dedicated to
improving the project in other ways. 

So if anybody wants to put some hands on (which would be great), here
are some starting points for getting ideas that are already documented
in the web.

Ubuntu Paper Cuts 
Ubuntu started to collect trivially fixable usability bugs and
documented them in their issue tracker. Since OOo is part of Ubuntu,
there are also some ideas how to improve it (mainly issues on the Linux
platforms). Here is a list which may contain anything:

Just a last request - if anybody starts to work on that, please let us
discuss proposed changes first. So be cautious :-) People may have
raised very personal issues that may even have a negative effect on many
other users. But if we don't start to look at it, we won't even have
improvements. A very good and short statement (thanks Ubuntu!):
