The Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Advanced check box will likely be
dropped once Sidebar is accepted as more than an experimental feature. So only
the View -> Sidebar to select or unselect would remain if it is accepted and
moves forward--likely.

Really? Seems to behave fine when enabled, but not selected--or when selected
but not shown. And upstream in AOO, while enabled by default--has no problems
when not selected from menu. So why would it have to be on by default?

Probably less than that with the Show & Hide edge buttons as implemented. But
Sidebar currently does not have to be selected active.  Do you think we need to
move toward setting active by default?  In either case, the underlying menus
and panels don't go away, they just have alternative GUI delivery consolidated
onto the sidebar.
