U4-7581 - Why so curvy?

Created by Matt Brailsford 18 Dec 2015, 16:08:57 Updated by Shannon Deminick 14 Jan 2016, 10:35:34

Relates to: U4-7567

A lot of the new UI stuff seems to have some inconsistencies. One big one for me is all the curvy corners. Prior to the new doc type editor, everything else was quite angular (no pun intended) which kinda makes this stick out as odd. I'm wondering if the border radiuses should be dropped for the sake of consistancy?

@madsrasmussen & @simonbusborg , any feedback on this? I think matt had a screenshot with non-rounded corners that we could review

I agree with @matt, it's not really consistent.

The reason why the editor has rounded corners is that in the design phase we chose a more caricatured, bold and round style to emphasise that content types are previews and not “real” tabs and properties.

I have looked through the editor and removed the rounded corners in the header, listview, permissions and templates section to make them more consistent. We know the design section is inconsistent, but for a reason.
