[lively-kernel] Lively Mockups: Access

Here's a simple starter drawing project for somebody: mockup a redesign of
Lively's contextual menus. Strip out anything which would fit better in a
new system browser. Consider adding new menu items relating to vector
illustration such as "Lock/Unlock Morph", "Zoom Morph to Fit", "Ordering",

Also, if you're not sure where to edit, just create your own documents and
link to them from the entry page.


Here's one interesting concept which I strongly favor: select multiple rows
in a column and then their detail views stack in the next column. Example:
instead of a *Styling* top level area, have a *Selection* area. The *
Selection* area contains "Selected Morphs" (a list or table), "Selection
Styling", "Selection Scripting". User can select rows: "Selected Morphs" and
"Selection Styling" and they stack in the next column and scroll vertically
as one. The user could also select and view them individually. This concept
is like a tabbed pane where the user can see more than one panel at a time.
I'm not able to draw this *Selection* area example immediately but an
example of this stacking behavior already exists in: *Examples Harness *and
also in* Coding*. *Resolve*: this selection stacking should probably not be
allowed at arbitrary depths: e.g. when traversing submorphs.
