[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Killed the ButtonBar in slide sorter

Hi Astron, UX guys,

I've talked to an Impress power user recently, and he was complaining
about the buttons in the slide sorter [the thing you can see on the
attached screenshot].  This was actually not the first complaint I got,
and also I remembered our discussions that we should do something about
them, so I decided to just kill them for now:


Slide duplication was not easily accessible after this, so I added it to
the right-click menu:


The rest (slide show start, hide slide) are already available easily -
the former from a toolbar, the latter from right-click menu.  Using that
feels surprisingly well to me, and visually it is much less disturbing -
I hope OK for you too?

This all leads me to thinking that things that appear somewhere with a
timeout after having placed the mouse pointer there are annoying in
general [referencing there the header / footer too], so I wonder if we
have any other occurrences of such behavior around?  I'd probably kill
it too, in case we do ;-)

Thank you,
