I was a tad disappointed to find that toolbar was in addition to the ones we both already
have at the top and mostly was just a duplication of many of those buttons.  However 1st
time try-outs of new things seldom go completely smoothly!  lol

all programs seem intent on making the screen more and more like a letter-box slit with more
and more wasted space at the sides and more and more crammed in at the top&bottom.

The individual toolbars and the sidebar are all separately switchable on/off in a standard
AOO 4.0 installation.

Switching off standard toolbars releases space at screen top; using Sidebar uses side space.
If one wishes even more vertical space one can (Operating system dependent) often turn a wide
monitor on its side.
