Summary0011635: Little PP improvement
DescriptionIn the PP, the Text pane part that is at the begining of the text pane, before the subpanes, features properties that are related both to paragraph styles and to character style.

However the 'Character Effects' buttons are relegated in a subpane of the Text pane, along with the text-color properties.

Proposition is :
Move the 'Character Effect' buttons to the right of the 'paragraph align' buttons.
There is room for it and it reduce the browsing-through-subpanes necessities.
TagsNo tags attached.

The character effects are at their current position for two reasons :
- these are character properties not paragraph properties
- some character effects rely also on character color properties

All this PP UI is a complex issue and if you have idea i'd be happy to comment on them, or test them...

As for first remark : the main part of text pane allready proposes other character settings. To distinguish the character buttons from paragraph buttons, the character buttons could be aligned right.
This left/right paragraph/character separation leads to imagine too: having the paragraph style dropdownselect on the half left and the character style selct on the right half of same line...

Here is another *alternative* proposition :
suppress the "paragraph effect" subtab of Text pane and move its content into the "Color and effect" subtab, at its bottom. Then all basic "effects" are together (but not advanced characters settings...) and it makes one subtab less.
