Taking a look at IBM Lotus Symphony Documents

Launching Documents

When you launch Documents, the first thing that will jump out at you is a panel on the right side of the screen called the Sidebar. The Sidebar is very handy and in a scaled-down way mimics the Office 2007's Ribbon by making the most commonly used tools easily accessible. As you can see in this image, the default Sidebar in Documents contains the most commonly used text properties; however, you can change the Sidebar to display the most commonly used paragraph properties.
