Toolbars in Calc chart editing that need to be ported to the Notebookbar.
When double clicking on a chart to edit chart, the UI in Calc changes to a distinct set-up with three unique toolbars: Drawing, Formatting and Standard.
These toolbars need to be ported to the Notebookbar UIs for the Notebookbars to leave experimental.
I request that Notebookbar UI files are placed in the corresponding location so that Andreas can work on creating Notebookbar equivalents to those toolbars.
Would be nice
needed commands to do chart editing are here:
Szymon mentioned the following:
- You just have to edit notebookbar.ui file from calc directory using glade and put these commands in the current Tabbed bar/Groupedbar "Object" tab.
- this should be implemented in the existing ui files. As you can see notebookbar was switched to the tab "Object". Unfortunately we can't detect what type of object is currently selected I think.
But we can put some functions from mentioned toolbars in this place (object tab_

Alternative 2 with Forward and Back buttons
Here's an alternative with Forward and Back buttons as well (this way lower and bottom line are more symmetric). We would need pointers for Forward and Back buttons though
This bug can be fixed with:
1. add notebookbar option for chart module
2. add remove notebookbar (from other modules) like in the codepointer menubar and toolbar were removed from other modules.
It's a clear request to development and no further UX input is needed at the moment.
Since this UX related, that's why I added NeedsUXeval. I'm sorry. :(

No problem. We set the flag for UX/UI related discussion but when the input has been given it's removed. Developers don't work while things haven't been discussed thoroughly (as long the flag is set).
I care about getting this fixed, so I'm offering USD 20 via FreedomSponsors to the first person who fix it.

You pasted the wrong offer, instead you meant https://freedomsponsors.org/issue/842/add-notebookbar-ui-files-to-the-chart-editing-ui-to-create-tabbedbars-and-groupedbars-for-those-toolbars
as fare as I know is that chart disable menubar, toolbar, sidebar and statusbar from the running app and draw there menubar, toolbar, sidebar and statusbar from draw app.
So best would be to disable notebookbar when you are in draw cause than you see instead of notebookbar (from main app) and toolbar (from draw app) only the toolbar from draw app.
