(This seems to fall across various components, so hope this is the appropriate place)

Here are some simple errors in the toolbar icons and add commands menu for customising them.

1 ‘can’t undo’ should be ‘undo’

2 can’t restore’ should be ‘restore’

3 ‘Apply style’ should be in the edit category, not in documents

4 There are a number of commands which appear to be duplicates eg ‘numbering on/off’ and ‘top’. Or if they are not, the difference between the two versions should be made clear, and descriptions added for the ones that lack them.

More generally, looking to OOo 4:

1 There are far too many useful functions which do not have graphic at all, so you end up with ‘Outline Numbering’ and ‘Word Count’ as icon! They all should have one in my view.

2 The intricate system of installing them is totally outmoded and very tedious. It needs to be streamlined.

3 Most important in this is that drag and drop should be the norm.

4 Also a better way of presenting all the icons for customisation needs to be found.

5 The standard set of icons is very limited and gives new users the impression that OOo is lacking in functionality and usability. A more comprehensive set would greatly help with this. 

NB There are similar problems in the spreadsheet too.

Confirmed on AOO 3.4.1 on Windows 7/32-bit.

Tools/Customize, then click Add.  For example, in the Edit category, see "Can't undo" next to the Undo icon.

Some errors/inconsistencies in the en_US version, but it is very likely that some of the errors have flowed into translations as well.

(Should probably put the enhancement requests, which are good ones, into their own issues, so they don't get lost when the defect part is resolved)
