Meet My Stylist

AbiWord‘s Stylist formatting palette could be substantially improved by making it WYSIWYG and reorganizing items.

  • The current Lists section
  • Lists with markers and more logical grouping
    1. The markers make it easier to visually locate the desired list style.
    2. Related list types are grouped together.
      • Ordered lists first (upper case on top, lower below).
      • Simple geometric shapes next.
      • Miscellaneous symbols at the bottom.
    3. Assuming it doesn’t cause accessibility problems, the simplified names make for easier visual scanning.

Heading styles could also benefit from WYSIWYG:
