Office 2007 Gets Themes, UI Tweaks
Microsoft continues to tweak the user interface for Office 2007, and has added a new silver theme to go along with the current blue and black color schemes. Office UI head Jensen Harris posted a screenshot of the new designs in his Web log Monday.
"Silver isn't infused or saturated with color, so that the design of your document stands out," Harris wrote. In addition, Microsoft has listened to feedback from customers running Office 2007 Beta 2 and has removed the curved upper-left corner, along with making the Quick Access toolbar look more like a separate entity. Harris says changes are still being made to the UI, and expects to finalize the design "in a few weeks."
