Here is the problem with personal preferences - In the last week the latest version of LibreCAD for Windows was downloaded from SourceForge ~10,500 times. Extrapolate that to the day it was released, Sept 2016, that would be 1.7 million times. Add to that Linux and Mac users and those that compiled LibreCAD themselves. Say that just 10% of them are active users - that is still roughly 200,000 users. I'm not sure that is even close to being right, but anyway you look at it there is a big number of potential users. Each one of them will have their specific environment, their own way of doing things and their own preferences. It is not reasonable to change the layout to suit any ones individual's expressed preferences. Using the numbers above, again if 10% of the 200,000 users use the RtD documents, that is still 19,999 of the 20,000 that are satisfied with the layout.
That is not to say changes cannot be made, but one person saying it needs done to be to suit their specific needs is a non-starter (IMO). If there was a suggestion for a change that was justified and that would suit the greater population of users then let the discussion / debate begin
