Hello Steve

Initial reaction — I agree somewhat as it would be easier than grabbing screenshots of visible 
buttons and possibly make a better layout. I shall try your suggestion.

I think this appendix should be in every guide. Each module has its own set of toolbars and would 
make it easier for the user. No need to go looking for another guide when wanting to find out 
something about toolbars. This appendix is easily adapted for use in another guide. I am already 
thinking about the Draw Guide.

More thoughts later

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your efforts drafting that.

Some initial thoughts:
I presume that much of the material in the section entitled "Using toolbars" will be the same for 
each LO component? If so, would it be more effective to include it in the Getting Started Guide 
and cross-reference from the other guides?
In terms of identifying the options that are assigned to a toolbar in its default configuration, 
I think I'd prefer simple lists of bullet points (rather than screenshots of lengthy menus). 
Probably a personal preference, but this approach reduces possible distraction from different 
icon sets and ticks, etc. One list of bullet points could come directly after the screenshot of 
the toolbar and list the visible options in the toolbar, from left to right. A subsequent set of 
bullet points could list the "invisible" items, presented in the order that they appear in the 
toolbar's right-click menu. (I suppose we could also try listing all assigned options in tabular 
form, with headings "Command", "Visible", and "Invisible", putting a tick in the 2nd or 3rd 
column as appropriate).
I'm happy to hear other views!

Subject: Toolbars in LibreOffice - an appendix?

Hello Everybody

I have place an example appendix about toolbars in Impress 7.0 Drafts folder. This is to give 
everybody an idea about my idea of a toolbar appendix.
Please review and make comment.
The appendix os only an example and is definitely NOT a finished piece of work.
