Revise the UI

Registered by Harvey Cabaguio on 2012-01-18

I've revised the UI a tiny bit from current footnote. Mockup here: http://imagebin.org/194010

Basically:

- The appmenu should be removed (The only thing the appmenu contains is the about item, which we can probably put in a quicklist on the dock.)

- Use contractor menu for exporting/sharing notes. (Since it makes more sense for the export option to be in the contractor menu, another reason to remove the appmenu)

- Add a "calendar bar" for finding notes easier within your notebook

- Tweak how notes look (close and share button on the corners, date stamp at the center)

I like it, especially the new look of notes. But few things:

 - Where can you edit notebooks?
 - IMHO if we have bold/italic/etc buttons in the note itself we should enlarge the text area
 - Right now I'm implementing things like "Export notebook", "Export every notebooks" and "Import"; where should we put them if we remove the app button? ~voluntatefaber

I think the import option will go to the toolbar as a separate ToolButton, just like the "Export all/whole notebook"-Button in the upper right

Ok, thanks, so I start from now to implement them as ToolButtons ~voluntatefaber

voluntatefaber, notebook editing is going to be done the same way, just forgot to mock it. But the button should be on the right though instead of beside the delete button. And stuff like export notebooks should be in the contractor menu -hcabaguio
