Description maxym 2014-02-19 21:35:25 UTC
I feel lost a bit.
From time to time, in Customize toolbar window, actions like Switch to Branch or Create Tag appear making possible to add these to a toolbar. But after a few next builds disappear.
Important info might be, that those actions has no icons. Are textual only. On action list appears as module names (names separated by dots)

A few days ago I've added actions listed above, but today, there actions are not on that list (but still remains on toolbar). 
I noticed this strange behaviour for the first time about half year ago. 

Could you explain this behaviour? Why those actions sometimes are present on list and sometimes aren't? Maybe these are appear only under some specific condition or so?

actions may appear only if they have an icon and because not all of git actions have icons, you cannot add all of them to the toolbar. If sometimes you can see their textual representation in the customize toolbar dlg it's a bug in the customize dlg. If you want more actions in the toolbar, you can provide an icon and i will happily add it there.

Currently I have 2 instances of NB8.0: at work and at home.
At home I have additional icons available on toolbar like switch branch, add tag etc. But I cannot see them available in Customize toolbar window.
I also cannot add them at work.

Probably it has happened once in the past, while features without icons were available in Customize toolbar window. I found, that those features were available in NB7.2.1

Moreover, I found Git Toolbar plugin which just adds new toolbar filled with available git options. 2 of them (Create branch and Switch to branch) are available as text ones. 

After you answered my question about behaviour, stated that it's due to bug I still would like to see possibility to add text buttons.

with regards.
