Here is a screenshot that I came up with tweaking the existing look
with gimp. Of course the two vertical scroll bars will be visible only
when there are too many variables or icons.
I like the idea. Possibly, we could have an "X" (close button) in the
upper-right corner, à la evince or totem, to revert to the traditional style
Also, about the small icons on the bottom. Does anyone use them? I
feel that it only serves to launch the icon view and the rest of the
icons next to it are just there to add some spice. If the icon view is
buit-in, then maybe those icons will not be needed anymore. Or it can
become a toolbar that can be turned on or off from the menu.
I use some of those a lot: new script, console, session view. The others, never.
By the way, in many applications "view" and
"edit" menus are common.
Does anyone think this might be a good way to organize the
functionality? I suggest something like this:
Not bad. A somewhat radical change, though. A lot of usability testing would
I agree now. On second thought, this was not a good idea. Multiple
will be confusing also. So how about gretl the game? This is for the
young students. You are the little girl Gretl and you try to save your
brother by performing certain econometric tasks beginning from the
easier ones like plotting. You get points for each tasks and use the
points to unlock new functions. You kill the witch once you are able
to do say, some serious panel analysis. Just kidding Jack :)
Wait until we give the cheatcodes away!
