The following changes should be made to the Edit Mode toolbar (or related UI) (based on a review of the current UI): * merge the icons and text into the same tabs * remove toggling of tabs (icon vs text) * remove the button to toggle between icon tabs and text tabs * make toolbar not be collapsed by default * make toolbar not be present by default (can be added by View | Toolbars | Edit Mode Toolbar) * make the tabs a real tab control (consistency with other tab controls/skinnability/etc.) * Change "pen" icon to be at an angle (similar to icon on taskbar)
Fix is ready.
Work is done except for hiding the Edit Mode toolbar by default. Can't do that until 41810 is fixed, since if you go into HTML Source mode via the View menuitem, you can't get back since commands don't work (you can click on the other EditMode toolbar buttons, so I'll leave them exposed for now.
Charlie, does the edit mode toolbar remember its last setup? Upon restarting the app, does it remember how the user last had it setup and return to that state?
No, there are no plans to remember the last editmode state. Since we will be hiding the toolbar by default, the user can change modes from the View menu. When they start another window or reload the app, there's nothing to show the last state, so it's probably best to always start in "Normal" mode.
Everthing is done except setting the default state to be hidden for initial installation. Still having problems with persistance for users that want it to stay open by default.
Fix for initially setting the toolbar to hidden, but making the state persist is ready and waiting to be reviewed.
The edit mode toolbar is now hidden by default. Just go to View | Toolbars to turn it on, and it should remain visible after that.
