Did you know? LibreOffice has an alternative user interface called the NotebookBar! To try it out, go to View > User Interface > Tabbed in the menu...
@libreoffice the notebook bar is phenominal work! thefunny thing however is, that for as long as ppl have been screaming for and demanding it, I really do prefer the "classic" LO toolbar & sidebar.
it probably comes down to whether you've been primarily working with MS Office >= 2007 or with OO & LO in the past.
@libreoffice It would be good to give the option when opening LO first time, explicitely (e.g. with screenshots), between the classical way and this one. Many users coming from MS don't know about it and would be glad to see that it exists. It's hard to make people switch but, once they are willing to give a try with LO, it's easier to manage to convince them to keep using it.
@Thibaut Hi – this is indeed being discussed: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117463
@libreoffice Great! LO should really improve the educative, accessible part in order to make it easier to new users, as most of us unfortunately started and learnt on MS Office. It would help to normalise the use of your programs and, indirectly, OpenDocument formats.
Thank you for your awesome work though!
@Thibaut Thanks! You can help us to improve things in those areas too: https://www.libreoffice.org/community/get-involved/
@libreoffice Thanks, I'll take a look
@libreoffice I'm liking the even lesser known "Groupedbar" more :)
I used it with libreoffice-qt5 on my Neon and wow it's wonderful, much more than the same theme wuth the default one on Neon (the gtk one).
It looks really great, that incredible. You are making such a good job!
@libreoffice Umm... I see no User Interface under View, in LibreOffice Writer 188.8.131.52.
