[Scribus] GUI thoughts - no newbie, no copy
Sun Mar 11 11:51:48 CET 2007
We frequently get in this list a troll asking us why the GUI does not behave
exactly like another piece of software and I agree that Scribus is not meant
to be like something else and habit is a lot to take into account.
Adobe has implemented in their product range minimizing of windows along
tabs, and minimizing the tools as window titles.
I have to admit that it was a smart design choice, and both Scribus and
Adobe InDesign are meant for professional users, not hobbyists (I have to
use both professionally but promote Scribus to my company as Adobe licences
are a ripoff). This feature saves time, helps focusing on the work to do,
not the use of the software. I believe it would improve the GUI. Not to
imitate for the sake of it. Imitate for the sake of the users.
Therefore I would like to know if the possibility to minimize properties /
align / shape edit windows is considered in future versions and what the
opinion of fellow users is.
