Summary0002017: Object properties toolbar
DescriptionThe object properties dialog box is a very often used features in DTP software.
My suggestion is to add a dedicated toolbar to the dockable toolbars with 6 icon-buttons as in the properties dialog box - X.Y.Z , SHAPE, TEXT, IMAGE , LINE and COLOR. This way the user can call the exact properties he need at given moment. Also an user should be able to call the separated properies with short keys. The combined properties dialog box (as in 1.3CVS) could stay, but pls take away thouse huge tabs! Put tiny icons to switch betwin properties. The visible working area is the most important resource when dealing with graphic design, their is no need to bottleneck it with big dialog boxes, which presence is a constant need.

We recognize some of the issues with the properties bar and there are already mockups of a more modular dockable palette. You might be interested to visit the wiki to see the Roadmap.
