Looks nice! Is this the new default theme or something the users will have to choose?

One comment: It's not very easy to see which tab is currently selected, in my opinion there is need for something more than just making "Adresboek" bold.

I also like it a lot.

Re Daniels comment, perhaps you could do:

Also, I hope it will show more than 4 address books at a time (I can not see how the scroll bars will look like). We use many address books....

Address book is shown in the blue area as well.

Yep. But it's not very obvious at a quick glance which of the tabs is active. Now you have to realize that the tab with the same name that is shown on the blue area is the one that is active, and at least for me that requires a second of thought. But that's just my five pences :wink:

Can you make that screenshot in english pls.
Why do you have 2 search fields on same page?

P.S. I agree, selected tab should be marked somehow. Maybe just font color change would be enough.

That is the same way today. The upper one is a global search, the one on the address book page searches in the selected address books.

We don't have an english version. It's not a screenshot but a mockup. The real theme is in the works and will take a couple of weeks to complete.

There are no 2 search fileds in my GO. Maybe I'm not using same theme (using default one, which dates from 3.7, 4.0 etc...).

That's strange. No matter which (out of the two available) themes I choose, I see two search fields, one global at the top and one at the address book top.

There should actually be 4 search fields in standard GO Address book module:

1. The global search field where you can search through everything
2. The address book search field where you can search for contacts and companies
3. The search field to find address books by name
4. The search field to find address lists by name

In the mockup you can see 1-3 but #4 is not drawn in.

Perhaps you don't have access to the search module? In that case you don't have the global search bar on top.

Probably.
But I think having 1 search field is better and less cluttering for UI. Problem is defining what to search for.

The location points out what it's searching for IMHO.
