Otherwise the Formula bar <F2> is not a regular toolbar structure . I think its icon on the submenu is an exception drawn from the toolbox. But then its entry probably does not belong on the View -> Toolbars menu anyhow.
I agree, but where you would like to place it instead?
Insert -> Object -> Formular (maybe another label cause Formular is already there)
Formular is already in Table
I'm not an expert with formulars, but I think it is more a field than an object, so I would say Insert => Field => Formula
It's possible to have calculations like
| 1.75€ | 2.01€ | =<a1>+a2>
| -12.5€ | 0.07€ | =<b1>+b2>
| | | =sum<a3,b3>
(the currency symbol must not be entered manually but as number format)
You cannot enter an equal sign like in Calc and expect the formula input to appear- that's what the formula bar does (F2 is the shortcut).
Agreed that View > Toolbars is not the best place and actually we do have the command under Table again (Formula is not restricted to tables but typically that's where it is being used). Furthermore, View > Toolbars > Formula becomes disabled when the formula bar is active making this menu item more or less a status information.
My take: kill it from this submenu.
No further comment, so please remove it from View > Toolsbars (we have the command under Table).
I thought you need an codepointer for an easyhack

You don't know how to change the menubar.xml? ;-)

It isn't that simple. It needs to change uno:AvailableToolbars. Do you know some codepoints for it?
