Please Clean up and Organize settings/Appearance Tab.

Its a Mess .. very hard to find stuff ...

maybe you have setting sectioned off .
im not sure ...

but this is not the answer .. i have never used a program
that was so hard to find a setting your looking for ...

i guess if you knowed the names of all the setting it would be super easy ...

but only the developers know that ....

I'm going to have to agree with Teksigns, Sean. I was surprised at the difficulty of customizing it. There are so many words that are redundant across the program, it's just a giant wall of text on those pages and it's extremely difficult, as a new user, to find how to customize it in a simple way.

What I propose is - instead of redoing the interface of the Appearance section - is to simplify the wiki to reflect the interface and creative an interactive rollover guide

Check out the MS Excel version as an example:

It reflects what I would see, and tells me where that function is. I just want a rollover that tells me what I'm pointing at is called so I know what to make changes to.
