[UI] ''classic''

Postby Guest » Mon Mar 08, 2010 5:44 pm

I like CintaNotes for its simplicity. Please keep it simple.

I'm using the windows ''classic theme''. CintaNotes menus appear different (I thik they called ''office something menus''. Is there a way to have the ''classic'' appearence in menus?

Thank you in advance

Hello, welcome to the CintaNotes forum, there's not a way to change the menu appearance at the moment. The possible graphical customization we have now, is choosing the color theme from the view menu. But about your request, I would like to ask, is it a question of aestethic? do you see an accessibility problem somewhere? I think it's very helpful for the developer and for the other users to know the reasoning behind each request, thanks.

it is partially a question of habit. I was always prefered the windows classic theme for its simplicity and ''clearness''. All the beautifull icons and colors etc. distruct me from my work. I prefer, for example, a monochrome icon with an arrow for the ''back'' function, than a beautifull ''detail'' of a painting with ''millions of colors''. (Sorry for my poor english).

sorry for the delayed answer. Thanks for your suggestion.
I try to make the UI of CintaNotes as unobtrusive as possible, and in a way MS Office-like.
But of course I understand that there will be people who won't like it as it is and will want something different.

I am adding a poll to this suggestion, and in case it gets enough upvotes a task will be added to the roadmap.
