This is the first version of the cocoa layout for the entry window, it's non-functional at the moment; though the built-in Spellcheck works right off the bat. There is still plenty of work left to do, but I figured I'd post this to get some feedback on the interface.
Obviously, it's a similar layout to what Phoenix uses now. To be honest, I've always liked Phoenix's layout for the most part (no big surprise, since I designed it). So, aside from some new tricks that Cocoa let's me do, it's more or less the same.
I didn't forget the picture button, the picture itself will be the button to choose your userpic. I'm looking at a couple of different options for making that more apparent.
The security and crossposting fields (which are normally invisible) have been moved to the drawer. The drawer will open whenever you select Crosspost or Custom Security. You can't see it yet, but they will function identically to how they do now, with checkboxes next to the choices to select them.
It's still a work in progress, but I'm really interested in any other comments or concerns you have about the layout.
