Description Damian Hofmann 2019-07-24 18:24:30 UTC
The tabbed Notebook Bar has a host of display/usability issues on Windows 10:

1. Tabs are too small in height
2. Underlined Mnemonics add visual noise
3. Padding between text and border of tabs is too small
4. Not enough contrast between colors for currently active and inactive tabs
5. Buttons are poorly aligned, have no space between and are missing borders

Overall, the Notebook Bar looks cramped and noisy. Lack of contrast makes it difficult to see, which tab is currently active. These layout problems impact usability.

Tested on Windows 10 1809 with LO 6.2.5
Screen resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160) with 250% text scaling

Steps to Reproduce:
1.View > User Interface > Tabbed

Actual Results:
cramped and noisy UI

Expected Results:
clean UI

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
