Description Drew Jensen 2020-01-05 20:36:31 UTC
The current insert QR Code is via the top level menu only:
Insert->Object->QR Code

The Insert->Object sub_menu offers three options, Formula, QR Code and OLE Object. 

Formula and OLE Object are also available on the Insert Tab when using the Tabbed UI but the QR Code option is missing. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer or Draw
2. Switch to Tabbed UI
3. Switch to Insert Tab

Actual Results:
No way to insert QR Code without showing and using top level menu

Expected Results:
A button for QR code is available on the Insert Tab or on the Insert Tab context menu in the upper left corner.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Don't think we have to put everything on the tab and the QR thingy is a good example for a function that I would hide. But up to the Notebookbar designer...

Thanks for the information. Therefore is the insert drop down menu on the right. In addition I can add it non visible by default in the tabbed UI.

Not resident yet as customize hidden control for the Tabbed NB. Would assume it would go in the Insert tab in the same block as the Symbol, Emoji and Formula controls.
