Description pxs 2023-04-05 12:16:38 UTC
In #120697, the function of the "Sigma" button was changed from calling the SUM function into a drop-down that also lets users select SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX, COUNT. 

This behaviour is annoying as it is not configurable. It might be useful for some users, but creates extra work for others. E.g. I need the SUM 200x more often than the other functions, so is is just another unnecessary  click that spoils the workflow. 

While other toolbars are configurable, the Formula bar is not. 

It is possible to configure a plain Sigma/SUM into other toolbars, but logically they do not belong there. 

Steps to Reproduce:
visible all time in formula bar

Actual Results:
sum drop-down

Expected Results:
Make the Formula bar configurable, or the sum drop-down optional.  

Reproducible: Always
