Having dealt with interfaces that were far too complex, I would ask yourself, what am I going to use on a regular basis? The list you come up with is your primary property page. Then there is the Advanced... button.

As for the color picker, I'm not sure my suggestion is doable.

I have long been an advocate to adding code all UIs to track over time what is being used and what is not. I'd love to see the metrics on something like Word or Excel... I'd wager 95% of what is in there is rarely if ever used.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
