It was suggested that I move or post this as a new topic here rather than in the New note button design thread, so here it is. Moderator, feel free to delete the other one.
I'm wondering if someone could design a "Beginner CSS file". Like a theme for beginners. Super simple. No markdown. No dual panes. No layout. A choice in Options to use the beginner theme with limited options or the "Advanced" them with Markdown, more plugins, etc. That way those who want an uncluttered, no hand holding interface can have it, yet there is something less intimidating and more intuitive for beginners.
I'd like to get my clients to use Joplin, and it would help them, but they would be turned off and confused by the complexity of the interface.
