Description

18 years ago
In our UI review, we found that these things needed to be changed in the
Formatting Toolbar in Composer:
 * remove font dropdown (only to be accessible from the menu)
 * break alignment menu up into 4 separate icons
 * (possibly change position (not stacking tho) of color pickers; Charley and
Simon to decide)
 * rearrange the toolbar to be ordered as:
      Paragraph dropdown list
      text color picker
      background color picker
      smaller
      larger
      bold
      italic
      underline
      <gap?>
      left
      center
      right
      justify
      <gap?>
      bullet
      number
      outdent
      indent
      {insert dropdown}

note:  some icons may need to be changed to make this grouping/reordering look good

ducarroz, do you want this new formatting toolbar in mail? Look at composer and 
see if you want the same look.

OK, this is done. I put the align buttons on the right, and used separators to 
make things look pretty. I didn't change mailnews. Ducarroz, if you want these 
changes migrated, reopen the bug.

Yes, mailnews need to use the same toolbar than editor (as much as possible). I'll port the changes to mailnews 

today
