I am attaching screen shot of LibreOffice UI.

On the left is the navbar.
- You can quickly navigate to any heading, a table or a captioned

On the right is the style - one can choose char, paragraph, frame, list
styles - at point.  
- In case of Org it will probably be element or point at point.

In the center, toward lower right is the jump to next and prev element

So the global view, doc view and local view seems to be pretty universal
across all UIs.
