Well, you should be part of the LibreOffice Design team, I love this concept and would use this style if it's available.
Really like it. Similar in some ways to apple's pages application - which i would like very much if it was opensource and if it converted word files as well as libreoffice!

Main comment I would have is that I would have the formatting windows/bars on the right. I often have docs on the left of the screen so I would not want the text shifting position on the screen if formatting opened and closed depending on what I was doing.

As someone who frequently uses LibreOffice, I absolutely love this GUI idea. It is far more intuitive then even the 4.2 GUI, in my opinion. Is there any chance that this will be implemented in a future version?

they need to use this, their current one is way outdated. and this looks great! you should see if you can find someone to make this as a theme or submit it to them

Reminds me a bit on the UI of Calligra Words.

Nice work

Can you create another one with the side bar on the right side?

Is the result a svg file? Would like to explore it on my own, like the ones from citrus UI.. :)

I think there should be a better difference between paragraph-styles and character-styles so i like citrus ui better..
I like Citrus better [link]

I drew a much better one. However, I have no idea how to make it into a fancy digital mockup.
If anyone is up to the challenge, just PM me, and I'll supply the drawings.

You're not part of LibreOffice development team but according to [link] you are in the Design team, right ?

If it's true, congratulations.
Is there a chance that these mockups be coded and added to a future version ?

that's really a great view of a NEW "Office" oriented tool interface. Great Job !

I would use LibreOffice if it looked like that :D

This is gorgeous! That would take LibreOffice so many steps ahead.
This is similar to what I dream of when I think about the word UI. :+fav:

This is stunning.
How long before we can install and enjoy?

LibreOffice needs this for the fourth version! It would imply a huge impulse for its use.
