When Bob produced the ability to customise the menus I thought -
great ultimate power! Then I thought, users might be unsettled by
missing options etc. And site builders might forget they had
eliminated features!! So I still think the default set is probably key.
My query is: why is CPK, Ball and Stick, Sticks,... etc. way down the
pecking order behind two vague words Style/Scheme ? These standard
options are on the same level as Red + Cyan glasses and Palindrome
I'd like to see them in the Style menu at the top level. Aren't they
at least that important?
Or if you think the Style menu is getting too long, Scheme could be
in the top level menu. This is probably the best solution.
My objective here is to raise these items to the point where a new
user has a good chance of finding and using them.
What do you think?
All the best

I agree with Nick's general feeling about simple, everyday commands
being rather hidden in the menu.
I raised this subject some time ago and, after the rather hot
discussion that followed about user interface design theories, I gave
But I still think it is important for novice users to have simple
options at hand. So, if we can reach some agreement, I vote for it.
Schemes already do complex things (like deactivating other styles
while activating one, applying color in addition to style...), so
maybe the separation of Schemes outside Styles is a good choice.
