what problem does this solve?
Sure, we then have a slightly less crowded status bar, but on the
other hand LibO's scrollbar will be shorter and less useful (cf.
horizontal scrollbar in Calc).
Mirek has described it pretty well - the original problem is that while
Status bar occupies the (precious) vertical space, the [plus minus] only
useful thing it has is the Zoom slider; so my idea was to move the Zoom
slider somewhere else, and hide Status bar by default.
It should not be horizontal (next to the horizontal scroll bar) - we
hide the horizontal scroll bar in Writer when it is not necessary, and
on most contemporary wide screens it not shown at all. The Toolbars are
still too crowded, too many information there, so adding it there
wouldn't work that well either. That left the vertical scrollbar -
together with Mirek's proposal to shrink it when there is not enough
vertical space, I think it might work pretty well :-)
Would it work for you that way?
