Hi Sam,

	First - thanks for the nice patch, and caring about our UI - we need
more such caring people :-)

	I'd like to get some input from the UX guys on this one if that's ok -
and we have this dip-in advice list (no need to subscribe) for this.

	Personally, I think cleaning up cruft from the toolbars is a good goal,
and some things like the 'hyperlink' and 'zoom' buttons and prolly the
'help' button too are not IMHO necessary - but it'd be nice to get a
simple ack/nack for hiding the zoom button by default here.

	Hopefully we can get that quickly :-)

	Thanks !

I've created a couple patches that remove the zoom button from the
standard bar by default. (That is, they are still present, so if a
user so chooses to, he can add them, but they're not shown by

One patch applies to Calc, and the other to Writer. To apply them, you
have to cd into their respective directories.
