After reading <URL:> about
user interfaces in open-source software, I would like to hear if anybody
on the list knows something about user interfaces (more than just from
having used a bunch).  If there are any, could you point out the worst
problems that Dia has in its interface?  I'd like to turn some attention to
that as we work towards a 1.0 release.

The first place to look at should probably be:

It even has two screen shots of dia dialogs to show bad UI design,
one of which I've modified before to increase useability :)

Cause the useability people choose to use Dia as an example 
they would probably love to give more detailed hints how to
improve Dia's useability :-)

Though solving common toolkit problems - like tab ordering in 
dialogs - or shortcut changes should probably be delayed 
_after_ porting to Gtk+2.0 which will give us other useability 
improvements, 'inverted' No and Yes ordering and the like 
(almost) for free anyway ...
