Description Jesse Glick 2003-12-04 19:32:52 UTC
Or just making it possible to suppress this
toolbar, e.g. using the context menu in the
window. The toolbar buttons don't add anything you
can't do with the context menu.

I find that I almost always use this window
indirectly using the F12 key and just glance at
it. On a small laptop display, the toolbar wastes
a considerable portion of the Suggestions window's

Also the position of the toolbar is not persisted
across sessions.

Dusan pushes toolbar concept a lot. I'm affraid that it's definitive 
for 3.6. It's about shortcuts discoverability.  
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2003-12-07 20:01:47 UTC
It makes a lot of sense for discoverability. But it would be nice to
be able to turn it off once you know what is there - e.g. with the
context menu.

Idea about another enhancement with minimization of Toolbars I took
from Mozzila. It's about intelligent dragger on the left side of
Toolbar. It has these two states:

    * expanded - Small drag texture in a vertical position is on the
left side and ToolBar is visible.
    * collapsed - Small drag texture in a horizontal position is on
the left side and ToolBar isn't visible.

I plan to remove tasklist toolbar for nb42.

jglick, does this issues still apply to the new task list window?
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2007-06-04 15:28:54 UTC
Yes, I think so.
