LibreOffice 8.0 UI Mockup

Here is a pretty promising UX plan going forward.

- There are multiple tabs for working on documents at once. The good news is that these tabs can be dragged and separated like tabs in a browser

- Start Center can still be accessed at the top right. In fact, you don't have to close all documents like before to access the Start Center

- The traditional menus (File, Edit, View etc.) can still be accessed via the dropdown in the Menu tab. This menu tab itself is like the main menu in MS Office which provides the main commands such as print, document properties and the like.

- You can keep using the standard/classic/traditional interface by accessing the shirt image icon on the top right.

- There is a global search tool that has the function of providing quick access to various available commands such as HUD or Tell Me, this global search tool can be used to find recent files and help content as well.

- Tabbed UI Notebookbar can be collapsed so that only the tabs remain with the ^ icon on the top right.

Of course all of this would only be possible if more and more talented and timely people joined in to contribute, and this post doesn't really represent the LibreOffice design team at all. We always lack people who want to help

  2. I don't mind tabs, but I do mind several items:

    * Shoving stuff into the title bar where I'm trying to drag the entire window to another screen. No, Edge browser, I'm trying to move you, not open a preview of EVERY TAB THAT'S OPEN (what a useless feature). And what's with that crap putting the search bar up there that auto expands when I click in it to search for something?

    * Hiding the menu bar. Yeah, MS Office does it in favor of a menu tab bar, but that thing shifts to a different tab half the time you're using it and the other half, you have to go through the File tab, which really isn't a tab at all but oh look, it's a menu... that covers the entire freakin' window... and contains more options that don't belong in a File menu.

    * The Start Center. Really? I just launched LibreOffice Writer to start a new document and you throw something in my way? Yes, I click on "Writer" from the menus. I haven't clicked straight "LibreOffice" in decades. We have a Start menu for that.

    * Global Search. There better be a way to cut that down to local documentation because if I need to find something in another tab, I will switch to that tab. I don't need another way to search through documents from five years ago that are on my hard drive; I got Windows' Indexer or "GREP" for that, and I'm not in a ton of code. FFS who edits code in a word processor?!?

    Please make sure there are options to turn crap off. I think the only useful thing here in my case is tabbed documents.

  3. I like this.
    What I don't like the title bar concept which doesn't have option to remove it. Like Firefox, Chrome, VS Code, etc provide such options. They consume the lot of space.
