A sort of flow control will be in the next PhraseExpress version.
Instaphrase will be based on our core technology but presented in a new user interface which we had in mind for a long time already. Instaphrase will be for those who like many buttons, ribbons and a colorful user interface.
But you are right, that Ribbons are a love&hate issue. This is why we don't build them into PhraseExpress. Many users tell us not to change the user interface for good reasons.
PhraseExpress aims to have the tidiest and cleanest user interface possible (if in Easy mode
) to get the work done. We carefully balance the need of every button and every option before it makes it into the user interface.
So we see little overlap in the userbase.
