1. drop down arrow on the side or bottom
see paste icon http://imgur.com/0z7Xvhl 2. mixed tabs and action icon
see http://imgur.com/0z7Xvhl 3. Shrink
The Problem is that when you shrink the wide you can say priority-123
and the section was hiden and you see only an arrow.
this isn't optimal cause the user didn't know what the arrow is used for
(you didn't know what)
The solution could be to define a view for expand and one for shrink.
e.g. Expand show all Paragraph stuff and shrink only one. could be mixed
maybe with 4.
4. Button show an context-xxx thing
this could help also for expand things like in the solution mockup
Character >> or Paragraph >>
but also it would be an workaround for the tabs layout you have than
buttons for Edit, Format, ...
The behaviour should be click on the Character >> button and the
(somewhere) right to the default Character stuff will shown.
Click on Format and the context-format section will be shown.
5. Icon and Text sizing
it would be really usefull when you shrink the size some actions show only
instead of icon and text this could help to have an layout for 800px and
6. Notebookbar Background
now there is a white background instead of transparent
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103235 when this is solved I can make a firefox theme for LibreOffice
I'll played a lot in the past weeks with layouts and design in the
notebookbar and with this 6 things I'm really fare to find a really awesome
solution AND to give other developers and designers something they can use.
I'll post some screenshots if you need additional informations.
> 3. Shrink
> 4. Button show an context-xxx thing
3 and 4 should be ONE thing.
- You can add an button for show expert toolbar and it will open it.
- You can add an advanced button (icon only, text beside icon, ...) and it
will show the advanced layout
or you click the button again and it show the minimum layout
so you define in glade two layouts. one for on one for off.

maybe it would be better to separate 3 and 4. the mockup show the full size
and than smaler sizes with >> expander.
the smaler size is once defined as show the first icon and once show the
second column in icon only view.
the shrink thing could work with show x column than you need an grid widget
where you define which thing should be shown always and which not.
could than work also with show/hide row and you define show row only when
click expand, ...
