Placing only the buttons and adding, perhaps, some other field not directly accessible, can help eliminate redundancy and also take the group so that the tab does not appear empty. (5.12 KB, image/png)

Description Leandro Martín Drudi 2019-08-19 21:44:05 UTC
Description:
In the References tab of the omnibarra (notebook bar) you have redundant and unnecessary options considering the use of the main button.
I think it is more useful to repeat what is available in the "Insert" tab or, just put the buttons to insert specific fields and an "Insert field" button, omitting the button with the menu.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Notebook bar visible
2. Clic on References tab


Actual Results:
Too many buttons for the same use.

Expected Results:
A more orderly and less redundant group of options.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes



Additional Info:
I propose to include all the menu buttons and even some other to insert another field and the "Other fields" button and keep the menu button to "Insert" because it has a greater number of options and this option would take up too much space unlike References that have few options and need to be fuller.

+1 for this proposal, but I would put "more fields" in second row (just for logical reasons).
Comment 6 Heiko Tietze 2019-09-17 07:28:22 UTC
I would remove "More fields" from the tab as it makes the whole dropdown obsolete.
