Presently in Calc, there isnt an easy means of changing the number format of a cell without opening the format cell dialog, so it would be useful to include the default list of number formats in the Format menu bar.

I see buttons "Number format: Currency" and "Number format: Percent"

Yes i meant access to all the various numbering options. :D
yeah yeah :) So remove the current buttons and create one drop-down?
(When all buttons are drop-downs, we end up with a second menu bar ;P )
But serious: I see no objection to the idea
