subj. instead of the drop-down list is better to make some buttons with frequently used type of border
Comment 1 V Stuart Foote 2016-01-09 13:36:38 UTC
This is of course for the Cell Appearance content panel of the Properties Deck in Calc.

Are you suggesting eliminating the current 4 x 4 matrix of borders to apply, or just adding a *row* of "frequently used" buttons?

A row of frequently used buttons would not be unreasonable, although the entire deck is getting kind of packed. And the current matrix selector control fits well with the other controls in the content panel.

However, would *not* agree to eliminating the matrix of border affects.

We've been eliminating labeling of the controls, and now depend on the tool-tips, but the controls respond to selections made so there is visual queue to the settings.

Two things that could be improved--since applying the cell borders are cumulative--the buttons in the matrix should have a selected/non-selected distinction. Also, the "preview" on the content panel does not render all of the borders as applied to the selection.

just adding a *row* (or matrix, as in attach) of "frequently used" buttons

Stuart's opinion on this request regarding cell appearance in Calc was to resolve this ticket as WFM. 

Basically I agree with the idea of one click interaction at the sidebar instead of using menus. But when we expose all 12 items on the panel it looks strange. So I tend to agree with Stuart.

Other opinions?

What is WFM?

Why looks it strange? Matrix 4x3 or 6x2 from not big icons instead one drop-down item will be normal.
Or can don't make all 12 items and will make only basic items
Comment 6 Heiko Tietze 2017-11-01 12:40:00 UTC
The current solution works well (WFM = works for me). While the idea of exposing the options to have all at hand for a single click selection is tempting, the benefit doesn't outweigh the implementation effort.
