Summary0015915: Indigo UI: refactor the Color and Line panels
DescriptionMartin's proposal is to create a Fills panel (most of the current color panel) and a Line one (the line panel plus the stroke color selection).

On top of that I'd suggest:

- Using the XYZ basepoint (it can already indirectly be used... and with the new widget it's "trivia" to only show two or three base points)
- Moving the arrow properties to a new content panel for lines (and beziers)
TagsNo tags attached.

one question: what is the use of "basepoint: end points"?

i see that it changes the width and height in x2 and y2...
is it all?

then i would suggest that for lines we replace the width chain button by a new button that switches between the width and x2, y2
the button would show "x2" in the normal state and "w" when checked.

0003765 has an interesting proposal for allowing 5 basepoints for lines.

martin is defining two widgets for the line panel.

since the arrow heads are moving to the content panel, and the "basepoint" drop down will be a button in the xyz panel, the advanced part shrinks to three buttons that we should integrate in the main panel.

now, one big issue i have in martin's proposal are the labels below and above the fields.

i think that the proposals i've created for the xyz and do well with less labels than martin did plan.

for the lines panel is a bit harder. does anybody want to make suggestions for improved layouts based on the considerations above and the screenshots down here?

p.s.: martin has forgotten, that when the line type is custom, then a further widget popsup:

friday evening... status report:

- the arrow heads are now in the content panel for the lines
- the easy part of the properties panel is done
- two screenshot attached and an appimaged linked:
- the color square shows the current color of the stroke but no pop up for setting the colors is there
- basepoint will go to the xyz panel
- the styles will be a fancy combobox...

one big question: i think that all fields are very clear... only for the shade (the 100%) i wonder if we can find an icon to put in front of it...
