If UX is short for user experience then please hear my humble request for enhancement. The right side (docked) bar is a common UI element present in many similar GUIs. Working with it should be easy and intuitive. Well, my intuition got a direct hit when I realised there's no Layer section in the Properties side bar. This is really bad for UX. I know how to do this according to /help/en-US/text/simpress/guide/layer_move.html While that procedure is simple enough, it's not intuitive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create layer L1 and L2 (visible, unlocked)
2.Draw one object on each layer (anything)
3.Select first object on L1 - open Properties side bar (to change obj layer)
There is no Layer section in the Properties side bar as one would expect.
Find a Layer section along with existing Character, Paragraph, Area, Shadow, Line, Position and Size.
User Profile Reset: No
I've seen this on latest macOS but is not a bug or some OS related thing.
valid enhancement request.
Handling layers for objects from the overcrowded Properties deck would not be the best UX for working with layers in Draw/Impress, IMHO.
bug 56498 and bug 90244 suggest that rather than a content panel in the Properties deck, handling layers merits its own Deck--or additional controls for a panel resident in the Navigator's deck?
Or having a context menu item "move to layer ...". It needs indeed discussion, _how_ to improve the UI. But I think, we agree, that improvement of the UI is necessary.
