Webuilder 2018 Interface Style needs improvment

Postby gwmbox » Tue May 08, 2018 5:13 am

Hi guys, I was very much looking forward to the Webuilder 2018, as I am a (no longer being developed) TopStyle user.

One of the best things about Topstyle is not cluttering up the the toolbar with too many tools

Topstyle has a unique tab based interface under a common toolbar, which you can select based on what type of document you are working on and/or you can tab from one to the other, as shown in the image here


Webuilder toolbar looks like this which is more difficult to see specific tools available


Is this somehing that Webuilder could consider in a 2018 update?


PS I'd like to see a non flat dark style too :)

We have considered Ribbon but most users were against it. I'll add +1 to the relevant suggestion and maybe we'll revisit it later.
This is a strange mix between classic toolbars and the ribbon, I'm not sure about the implications. I'll bring this suggestion up.

i find a ribbon interface very useful and better like the first image with a mixed toolbar. For me every topic (like fonts, htmltags, etc) should have a ribbon to better understand what to do. It's my personal opinion, but i repeat for me it's better a mixed toolbar with ribbons for every topic.

Was there any progress on this one?

It could be an optional feature/view so those that don't want it can just turn it off, or visa versa. It would really be great to have the different languages under their own tabs, plus have the ability to create your own toolbar items for things you do over and over again.

I loved TopStyle, but obviously really like WB 2018, having this toolbar tab option would make it complete :)
