Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-11-11 03:57:46 UTC
When you right-click on a toolbar there isnt any indication of what the name of the toolbar is. This could easily be fixed by having the name of the toolbar mentioned in the 'Close Toolbar' item.

I was thinking that instead of adding another entry to the context menu, we could add the toolbar name to one of the existing entries. For example, we can change 'Close Toolbar' to 'Close Standard Toolbar'.

What does the ux team think?

I prefer Philippe’s solution since it won’t make menus even wider, which is a huge issue in other languages.

Are you sure? Philippe's solution implies "close <NAME> toolbar" which is definitely wider then "<NAME> ..

I think he prefers the solution from the screenshot :-)

We have:
- Title (bold, top of menu, coherent with left to right, top to bottom reader), read-only, defined as a menu title. 
- Modified label of close. Simple solution, few modifications. 

What I asked to Jay is what is the use case we want to face by adding toolbar name to contextual menu. This is what should drive the choice. 

What I understood, it is to avoid closing the wrong toolbar. So the information has to be visible, simply and quickly.
But it also has to be geographically close to the "Close action".

Updated screenshot

Patchset 3 pushed to gerrit.
This is the new appearance of the popup.

I reused an existing aTitleText defined with Menu::SetText

The title is painted on top of the menu. It is no longer a hacked MenuItem. It is bold, centered on a slightly darker background.

Looks great Philippe.

This bug fix is mentioned in the release notes of the coming LibreOffice 5.0 (see release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.0). Therefore it would be wonderful if this feature really worked well, otherwise it should not be mentioned in the release notes. In the notes it reads:

Toolbar’s context menus display the name of the corresponding toolbar. tdf#86138 (Philippe Jung)
