The sidebar is no /more/ encouraging than the existing toolbars. This, and
other concerns about the sidebar encouraging the use of direct formatting
can be addressed by enhancement fdo#65351

This is already the case. There are buttons down the side to select the

The idea of launching/retrieving the various panels and perhaps subpanels
to/from the sidebar is a central issue raised by Mirek.

A better idea would be to simply improve the wrapping capability so that the
sidebar could be set to a required width and have the content more elegantly
adjust automatically. This will be contingent on the content in panels.
Buttons and icons (e.g., Properties, Gallery, Master Pages panels) are
easier to wrap, while list entries (e.g., Styles and Formatting, Navigator,
Custom Animation, Slide Transition panels) have a minimum width requirement.
Best wishes, Owen.
