Hi Daniel,

Are you serious ?

I totally disagree with your three statements:
1/ why punish the users who prefer to use the buttons instead of the right
click menu?
2/ I do not see where is the difference between toolbar and right click menu
here. How the use of the right click menu make the things better?
3/ "The point of the toolbar is to make certain actions quicker (and possibly
more accessible)": from my point-of-view, the main role of a toolbar is to make
visible the most important functions of the software, even if you do not search
them. To use the right-click menu, you need to know or to hope that the
function exists and that you could find it here. When you have a toolbar in
front of you with standard icons, you see the function.

If I consider my own practice, I can say that I do differently when I use a
mouse and when I use a touchpad. With the mouse, I use the right click menu,
and with the touchpad I use the toolbar or the shortcuts because I find the
touchpad less precise when selecting a submenu. With the button I am sure to
click the right function. You should take that in account.

Best regards. JBF
