Column and Row headers in Calc look dated, suggestions?

Hi everyone,

The Column and Row headers in any Calc spreadsheet look very “Windows
Vista”: they have a prominent faux bevel/reflection, which does not
fit with our mostly flat UI. Compare LibreOffice headers versus Office
2013 headers (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=74552 and
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=74551).

I’m not suggesting that we should copy Office 2013’s style, but the
trend everywhere (Apple doesn’t count) is to go flat, concise,
minimal, beautiful.

As a quick fix, we could at least revert to the OpenOffice.org 2.0’s
simpler headers

– these may be older, but look much better fitting in Calc.

Should we start a whiteboard for mockups? What do you think? I’ve
reported this as a bug
