Recent version of MS Office provides an optional user interface adjusted for touch screen devices, but LO Notebookbar have not optimized for touch screen, some button is very small that make some unconveniences. So Notebookbar should provide an optional interface for touch screen

Reproducible: Always

Saw a similar feature in WPS/Kingsoft, where when toggled it just adding additional padding to the buttons to increase the hit area of the buttons.

WPS touch mode
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2016-09-24 08:01:53 UTC
That requires large buttons only, and we need to remove some functions. Interesting task and a perfect example for the MUFFIN concept.
Comment 4 Volga 2016-09-24 17:00:54 UTC
That also requires an very easily visible option to switch it.

There is way more than this we need to do for touchscreen support.

I have created a meta bug for this.

This interface can also be automatically enabled when Windows 10 Tablet Mode is enabled.

TextMaker touch mode

FreeOffice 2018 is already implemented.

The different notebookbar's respect the icon size from system settings and follow the default widget settings from the OS so if you have an touch OS notebookbar will follow the OS margins, paddings, ...

So from my point of view there is no notebookbar related issue with touch screens.

Is that true? Does Windows 10 changes the app interface when a convertible is docked vs. used in table mode?
