Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-02-19 06:16:54 UTC
When you right-click on a toolbar and click 'Close Toolbar', this does not act the same as View > Toolbars > and then disabling a toolbar.

Steps:
1) Open Writer
2) Insert a table
3) Notice the table toolbar appears
4) Right-click on the toolbar and click 'Close Toolbar'
5) Click outside of the table and then back inside of it
6) Table toolbar appears again
7) Click View > Toolbars > Table
8) Click outside of the table and then back inside of it
9) Table toolbar doesnt appear again

If this is the intended behaviour for 'Close Toolbar' from the context menu, then an additional entries needs to be added called 'Close Toolbar Permanently' to behave the same as the menubar.

Reproducible with LO 4.4.0.3, Win 8.1

For me this current behaviour of Close Toolbar seems also not to be intuitive.  In the case of context sensitive entries one can think of a rationale behind, but if you take a look at other toolbars like for instance Changes they seem to behave like VIEW -> TOOLBARS.  Maybe, it would really be good to have a distinction between close and close permanently as Jay suggested.

@Cor: could you chime in on this as i know you have experience in disabling toolbars. :D

Yes, this is by design. Close a toolbar just for now, or permanent (until turning it on again.)

As that is how it is by design, then lets turn this into an enhancement to add an entry to the context menu to permanently close the toolbar.
