Description aziem 2005-09-28 21:45:20 UTC
There should be a floating toolbar that appears when the cursor is in the
context of headers and footers.  The toolbar should include easy accesss these
fields: page number, page count, date, and filename.

This is a usability issue:
- Some people have a hard time finding Insert->Fields
- Using fields in headers and footers is very common, so why not have a floating
toolbar for easy access?

Through usability testing, you should be able to find a few other functions
useful on this toolbar.
