In notebookbar you can define the icon size (in the settings dialog of LibO). It would be very usefull to define also the Label specific setting in the global System Settings.

This feature is not usefull for all notebookbar variants, BUT I would love to see it for the tabbed_compact variante, cause there the user can than change the label arrangement (left align label, bottom label, no label)

e.g. for Touch devices it can be more usefull to have the labels bottom align cause the horizontal space is small and for mobile no label can be usefull.

As discussed in bug 122799 about removing the option for different icon sizes I'm against making the user-defined Notebookbars customizable. It's up to the developer/designer to create a certain look and feel. Notebookbars are not a replacement for toolbars (that still should have all features).

In a broader scope I would also refuse any customization and extensions (despite going along with a special layout).

This makes sense in my experience; it gets harder to do any future changes otherwise since it is complex to cater towards such settings.

@Heiko: What do you mean with that? Is this customization of the Notebookbar’s look and mechanics or against having e.g. extensions that add a tab to the notebookbar or the like. In this case I agree with the first one but think that the latter should be there since a clean way to extend avoids hacky attempts to extend.

Yes, I wouldn't put effort in making the NB a clone of the toolbar. Extensions cannot register at NBs, basta (IMHO). But let's keep on topic.
Comment 4 Heiko Tietze 2019-02-14 13:40:41 UTC
We discussed the idea in the design meeting. Rather than customizing the NB, the designer/community should provide different variants. So closing this as WF.
Comment 5 Pedro 2019-02-14 13:46:48 UTC
We want extensions to register in Notebookbar and the notebookbar should be able to completely replace the normal toolbars. 
I wouldn't allow the user to define position of the lable because I think it is too much, and if it is to offer touch friendly variants that should be done by the designers.
