draw icon will open the insert grapic toolbar but in notebookbar everything should be available in the notebookbar.

Add context-drawgraphic for notebook bar that you can have a context toolbar for draw graphic when you click the insert draw toolbar. now with the icon the insert grapic toolbar was opened.

In the tabbed notebookbar implementation, a draw properties tab should appear and be switched to, and the drawing objects properties toolbar shouldnt appear.
Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) 2017-04-16 19:59:35 UTC
I'm confused andreas, as we have context-Draw for dealing with draw shape properties, or are you referring to something else.
Comment 4 andreas_k 2017-04-16 20:44:00 UTC
you are right Jay, the context-drawgraphic setting is already there so I don't need a context-drawgraphic setting.

What I need is to show the context-draw menu when click on .uno:insertDraw because I can't switch to the draw tab at contextual toolbars (without tabs) So I need an button that I can switch to context-draw layout not only switch to it when select a drawing also for the first time I'd like to start drawing I have to come somehow to the context- menu.
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) 2017-04-16 22:25:57 UTC
context-Draw is shown while inserting a shape or when selecting a shape, so having it appear when clicking .uno:insertDraw doesnt make sense. Changing .uno:insertDraw to show a hidden Draw group filled with buttons to insert shapes rather than showing the Drawing toolbar makes some sense, but i would be against this change.

What makes more sense and what i'd support is to have devs create an easy means for glade designers to create toggle buttons (GtkToggleButton) that could reference a hidden tab or group and the button would unhide it when clicked. @Maxim, @Szymon: Would this be something simple to create?

way better. That's exactly what desingers need when they have available less space. That's exact what I need jay.
