ok, here're some basic things which come to my mind about streamlining and a more copy'n paste friendly layout:

- the colour-string should be global, instead of column-specific(individual column-foreground-colors can easiely be set in the column-string itself.
- selected-item-frame and background-color could then too be moved into the above global colour-string, and the coresponding color buttons removed
- rename "titleformatting spec" to "titleformating"
- rename "use custom titleformatting spec for sorting by column" to "use custom sorting string"

rearange the options:
- make the current "more" page, the root UI-page
- rename the current root UI-page to "column-formatting" and make it a sub of the root
- move the global color-string, vis-color-buttons and font-settings into a third options-page called "fonts & colors"

Of course the above is just my personal opinion on what could be improved about the options, and it may be well the case that most others do find my proposals wrong or plain stupid.

- Lyx

edit: even better would imho be, if the "global string" and "global color string" could be merged, so that we could set the global colors right inside the "global string" with a function, or something like that. But i don't know if thats possible.
