See "Startup view integrated with the File menu". Mockups Modern GUI of Calligra Words Ideas Go with browser-like main window UX, so: tabbed interface for multiple document handling background loading - "speeds up" the app, makes it possible to quickly open multiple tabs (using thread(s), needs major rework or calligra internals) background saving - "speeds up" autosave - like in a browser app (uses the background saving, like google docs?) Have access to the history of saves, so it is possible to back to the previous versions Have a "Revert" button instead of reload back/forward buttons could let hyperlinks work nicer show recent documents history in these buttons use hyperlinks instead of buttons and message bar instead of modal message boxes in general, avoid modal dialogs have browser-like search box for full-text search feature re-use the URL bar: for local files, somewhat show breadcrumbs to avoid unfriendly file:// URL for remote URLs show the real URL use bookmarks and history system Have some "reading" mode, with much simplified UX for read-only documents by default or even have "reading" mode always by default, and display "Edit" button Have a home page with templates and recent documents Option: Embed QtWebKit browser or Konqueror (or any browser) in a tab web page link is clicked Offer seamless editing of the page's content (then user moves from web browser's mode to) Since users open many tabs, offer multi-clipboard for storing multiple snaps (text graphics); this helps to organize the work Offer displaying multiple views of the same document in separate tabs, indicate visually these are for the same document, e.g.: ______ Notes.odt ______ | Chapter 1 | Chapter 7 | <--- two tabs groupped as one IRC logs Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Calligra/Usability_and_UX/Common/Web_Browser-like_UX_for_Main_Window&oldid=30540" This page was last edited on 9 March 2013, at 11:16.
