Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice UI should be tweaked, not reinvented


Robert, I'm sorry, but I must
disagree with you.I'm not a developer, I'm a user.I will admit that
I started with Microsoft Word (More years ago than I'm comfortable
admitting), but switched to OO.o as soon as it came out.It's only
just recently that I've begun to understand how to use (and create)
styles because of the complexity and lack of intuitiveness involved.That, coupled with the gadawful 
heading and text styles left me with
having to adjust the Microsoft way - manually.I would much rather be
able to set up a style and have a document stick to it than to have to
go through manually and adjust everything just because I made a
change.But, not being a "trained" power-user, the best I can do is
stumble along learning by accident.And, just in the way of introduction, I have been many things in 
my
life.In one job, alone (that I held for 15 1/2 years), I was a
self-taught AutoCAD operator, a self-taught webmaster and website
designer, a brochure and flier creator, and the jack-leg systems
administrator that answered such questions as "how do I do this with
this program" (a program with which I was unfamiliar and didn't have
installed on my machine), or "how come my machine keeps slowing
down/crashing" (people just won't learn about viruses).I am looking forward to LibreOffice as the 
new freedom from Microsoft

that could be replaced with a simple style chooser :)Here I have to disagree, non power users are 
much more likely to use
the font chooser and size selector than they are to have anything at
all to do with styles.
