I am familiar with open-office, but not intimate with all of it's details.

Somehow I managed to activate the "function list" panel.

Then I tried to turn it off, and my problems began.

The panel has no title, so I had no idea what the thing was called, so I could
not search in help.
There is no "close" button or anything else similar.
I looked in the "view" menu as the logical place to activate or deactivate a
major piece of UI. 

I looked in "Tools" and "Options" and "Data" and "Window" and "File" as possible
secondary locations.

It did not occur to me that the relevant menu item would be found in the
"Insert" menu!!
Which simply does not make sense.

 Give it a title and a close button.
 Move the "Function List" menu item to the "View" menu.

the function list is for easy inserting of functions into the spreadsheet and
therefore located exactly at the correct position.

To get rid of it, you can switch it off by simply choosing function list from
the insert menu again or clicking on one of the edges of this form and drag it
to un-dock it. After that you can press the closer as you can always do with
undocked controls.

but let's requirements decide.
