    3 The does look better for the upload button. The button currently remains when it's open to toggle closed, but we could add a close button on the right end of that one-link approach as well. The install button is "supposed" to float right currently, but it may depend on screen size. That particular UI is exactly the same as in the admin, so we'd probably want both places updated. However, the shiny theme upload is actually the one thing that's not yet functional, and a potential element that could be split out and added in the future if we don't have time to add it.

    55In addition to the "customize" back button, `esc` currently closes the panel. The customizer browser history project (slated for 4.7) would enable the browser back button to also work, and this came up as something users expect to work in the user testing as well.

    7 The mockup with themes over the preview is interesting. I like that the customize context remains clearer, and we could potentially show a back button in the customizer pane to close. However, I'm not sure that it makes sense cognitively to show a grid of themes where the preview is - that may introduce confusion about what the preview/site vs. the UI is. We'd also lose the visual hierarchy of themes being "above" all of the other controls by placing them to the left of all of the other customize options. The customize pane also feels like "wasted" space with some irrelevant options (device preview, save & publish probably doesn't make sense when you can't see the preview, etc.), unless we were to place other elements there, such as the help text maybe? Once we start hiding the irrelevant elements and changing the type of thing that's shown their, though, we'd also lose some of the consistency of having that visible.

    99@folletto what are your thoughts on the proposal above and the current one with a full-screen slideout, since you came up with the original layout concept of the full screen slide?
