About the project
FLUX UI, or FLUX User Interface, is a user interface design proposal for OpenOffice.org initially developed by Joshua Martin, Stephan Ruben, and Mikko Lehmitsolo but whose development has grown to be a community effort. The ongoing mantra, or constitution, of the development process has been the three statements as follows:
- The document is the most important UI element.
- Don't show the user what he/she doesn't need at the moment (context sensitivity).
- Don't focus on a single UI element (i.e. Ribbon, Menus, Tabs) - use a hybrid of elements so that the information is displayed in the most appropriate way.

| What about an effect affecting each page size, such as in mac OS X Dock? In this way, the feature could be accessed whatever the number of pages, window size and zoom level. It could also use more screen space for the selected one. The pages images and the "window" could also appear only after a short pause in drag-and-drop, to assist the user without taking screen space in normal operations.
And what about multi-pages view (e.g. when two pages are displayed on screen?)

Current Color Palette
The current color palette is in the process of being assembled. Possible considerations for the color palette include the User Interface: Visual Design Groups work with the Galaxy Icon Palette.
