Of course, it would take more space. But I also think, there should be
changed a lot of the toolbars, a major redesign, like MS did it with the
ribbons (I like their idea, but think LibreOffice should get another
interface, even a better one ;-). With this major redesign, there would be
used a lot of space used in another way.
In the first step, we should implement this slider as another toolbar, which
is not activated by default. Then we could make the users pay attention to
make usability tests.
I've made a screenshot of what it looks like now (on a 24" screen with
full-hd resolution). I don't need this much space for editing texts.
For example, there is MS with its ribbons and calibra with its control
elements on the side. I think the time has come to redesign a lot.
