Getting everything looking up to spec takes a lot of aligning and arranging, resulting in many clicks on the "Align" button to select the desired option.

Why not break these out into individual buttons accessible right on the toolbar? I've done this with a customised ribbon in Powerpoint and I will NEVER go back. Everything available at a single click.

There's a lot of spare space on the ribbon to do this.

    Agreed, although the Align buttons are always in the bottom right of the window and you coud also add them to the "Quick Access Toolbar".

    WOAH - I'd never noticed that in 8 years of Lectora use... thanks @timk!

    All those tools along the bottom of the screen should move up to the top ribbon IMO (again, like Illustrator). I'm always accidentally hovering over things in my taskbar/system tray when trying to punch in X/Y coordinates.

    To support @v01d 's point, I urge ELB to have its software designers think more about Fitt's Law and its implications.

    Why, yes, I am a former interface guy.
