Improved alignment of ribbon band content in Flamingo 5.0

April 17th, 2010

I’ve spend the last few days pushing a few pixels improving the alignment of ribbon band controls in the latest Flamingo 5.0dev. This is how it looked before:

And this is how it looks now:

Main improvements:

  • Equal amount of horizontal white space around the controls
  • Equal amount of vertical white space between the buttons
  • Aligning bottom edges of controls across columns

The change is in Flamingo 5.0dev only, so you can still use the final 6.0 releases of Substance core and Substance Flamingo plugin. There’s also a matching test case using the excellent FEST library. Thanks to Ivan for pointing this out and testing the fixes.
