OK, so describe in detail how you'd get straight to the hand, ie:

- Exactly what you think should happen to the user interface
- How the user would interact with the program as you think it should be
- How your changes preserve full functionality and make it easier for 
beginners to find and use WITHOUT impairing use for experts

and I'll be interested. I asked you before and (unless I missed it in 
this giant thread) you ignored the request, suggesting that you prefer 
to criticize without offering alternatives, something I find rather 

I would like to hear your DETAILED and WELL THOUGHT OUT descriptions of 
what you think can be improved.
