sorry for replying so late, but I've been quite busy within the last days!

Kendy, I only wanted to thank you very much that you are actively dealing with 
this issue and emphasize once more that my initial concerns were all about 
space. Since LibO is normally not used as a pure reader for documents the 
option to turn the scrollbars off is not of such great importance. I have to 
admit this, even though I would prefer to hide them once and for all. The 
proposed shrinking of the minimum size of the page margins would help a lot to 
alleviate problems with smaller screens. A refactoring of the navigator (I 
remember that I've already seen some mock-ups) would also help. It is very 
useful, but eating up a lot of width--not only because of the icons.

Thanks once more and regards
