Description Juetho 2012-09-06 11:59:44 UTC
Feature Request: Opening a form in design mode, the toolbars - especially Form Controls, Form Design - should be shown automatically. Opening a form in edit mode, all the toolbars (and the menu bar, too) should be hidden automatically. The user may be disturbed if there are toolbars and menu bar without any function.

In earlier version of OOo this was a normal behaviour: When you opened the form for editing the toolbars for editing a form appeared. When you opened a form for input of data, the toolbars disappeared.
Could be a good idea, that only the navigationbar of a form should be shown, when a form is opened for input. Some people may use the print-function of the menu bar, too. So this would be integrated in the navigation-bar. But all other functions aren't used.
