Description Wlada 2013-10-18 20:21:58 UTC
When somebody wants to make visible  e.g. Picture bar (in e.g. Clac), he or she must to click on View, then on Tolbars and finally on Picture bar. After that, automatically all submenus are closing. Nice, but problem  is if somebody need a few tolbars. He or she must repeat the path to desire bar and that is really wasting of time.
My proposal: Let it be  as it is now, for left click. But, if I want more action on one submenu, I will do with right click. Using right click on my mouse will not close submenu. 
Maybe this proposal sound trivial, this is certain not some big project inside AOO, but surely this is project which can give us better comfort and  keep our smile  when using AOO.

Enabling multiple toolbars is indeed inefficient.
Another option instead View - Toolbars:
Make toolbars panel in Sidebar with checkbox near each toolbar.

If this bug is only about the menu "View" - "Toolbars", then you could add this item to a toolbar, and make the submenu more accessible (just like the submenu from "File" - "Recent Documents", that is now available from the Open toolbar item in the standarbar).

The issue is then:

- right click on a toolbar to open the context menu
- select the item "Customize Toolbar"
- press the button "Add..." to open the "Add Commands" dialog
- in "Category" select "Application", and in "Commands" select "Toolbars"

Bug: you get a toolbar item that has no icon and no drop down menu

This bug is unrelated to the request for enhancement in this report.
