Digital signature: Useless for most users, i think we should hide it

In the organization where I work, we have individual smartcards for id purposes, with which we can (and we do) sign documents. It is very handy to have this information visible somewhere. I'd *really* like the information to remain visible. The status bar seems the best place, unless some other idea comes.

Document modification: Someone suggested to put an asterisk
on the title like other programs, i think the same thing.


Insertion / selection modes: I played around with them for a while
and they are generally useless, you can do all of that with basic
keyboard shortcuts. Also, most users have no idea of the meaning
of the weird abbreviations in the bottom. I say we remove it.

Page: Maybe you can use this... somehow, i'd say we take
it out too.

(page) Style information is always useful to have. This allows to not have to click on the Style and Formatting bar, page category button, just to know the current page style. Please keep it.

Visualization mode: if it was a selector it'd be ok... in the view
menu, or the toolbar. But a simple indicator is quite useless
since all you have to do to know what mode you are on is look
at the screen.

In Calc:
Sheet: The sheet selection is right above it, no rel need for
"sheet x of x"

Have you ever had dozens of sheets? I'm sure you couldn't see all of them at once.

Sum: I think this shows the value of the selected rectangle,
which you can see inside the rectangle, no need for it either.

You can change the function applied to the current selection (sum by default): just right click on the status bar. Very useful, too. So, I'd ask to keep that.

In Impress:
Position and size: How could you use that? These things are
usually done by eye, most people don't use it, i think it should
go too.

The mouse is evil :)
Many people use the dialogs to change that. Having the information *before* calling the dialog is useful.

Template: No one ever bothers on checking this out, you usually
choose the template you like without ever caring about it's name.

The person looking at the presentation is not always the creator. There, I can see the template chosen by the author, then decide to change to something else.
