I'm going to add some links to places where the C++ code would need to

What is the target display width for your design?

We may have users that are using 800 pixel width CRT monitors.

So whatever you design to be on the side panel, the work space that the use
will be doing the typing and editing in must be wide enough for them to
"efficiently" work with the document file.

When I was working with the display withs under 1024 pixels, I found many
packages that were not designed to be easily used with the smaller width
display/monitors.  I have some that do notwork with any display that are
less than 800 pixels high, let alone a narrow width.  There bottom buttons
were not accessible.

So please think about the users we may have that need a package UI that work
well and easy with a 800 pixel wide CRT display or similar limiting with

To be clear, the underlying image was created by Paulo José. Working
on smaller screens is a good question, but you have to get something
before you make it work with additional constraints. LibreOffice has
two challenges, looking good on the upcoming high-res screens, and
working okay on the smaller screens. I think as a start, the focus
should be on >~1280 pixels wide screens.
