Hi Colm,

the second toolbar is for Text Objects embedded into a calc sheet and therefore
this isn't an Issue.

Of course it is an issue! How is a user to understand that there are two
toolbars with almost identical controls? We have far too many toolbars as it is.

Text Formatting have some  extra features like uper script, subscript, etc.

so not a valid bug
Comment 6 oc 2005-01-13 09:14:05 UTC
The look and content of the toolbars was defined by user experience. (see also
). => no defect. Feel free to reopen and forward as enhancement to user

Cc-ing mmp to resolve this.

The specification does not say that context-sensitive toolbars can duplicate all
or some of the buttons of other toolbars.

It does say:
"This means that just a limited set of toolbars are context sensitive."

The correct solution for this problem is either)
a) remove the extra buttons from the context-sensitive toolbar
b) put those buttons on a dynamic sub-toolbar

Yes, I agree it is an issue, but we have not changed anything here compared to
OO.o 1.1. 
Thats why I change the target to "Office later"
