--- Comment #9 from Jay Philips <philipz85 at hotmail.com> ---
So Heiko and I created a survey to ask online users about their clipboard usage
behaviour, which was held at <
http://user-prompt.com/how-do-you-want-libreoffices-toolbar-configured/ >. We
also replied to comments made by participants, which can be found at the bottom
of the blog post.

So the results of Heiko's survey showed that 8% of respondents used the toolbar
for clipboard functionality, with the largest amount of respondents being
keyboard shortcut users (77%).

When asked whether they agreed to the hiding of these functions in the toolbar,
49% agreed with their removal and 16% agreed with the removal of just the copy
and cut buttons. One of the respondents stated in a comment that he wanted
access to the paste button as it has easy access to paste special, which i
replied to stating that paste special is now present in the context menu.

With 8% of respondents being toolbar clipboard users, which falls in the 5 to
10% range i stated in the bug description, i believe that these buttons can be
removed for all libreoffice modules. But i have suggested that this be
postponed to the release after 4.4, as many good changes are already coming to
the toolbars in the 4.4 release and hopefully we can gather more data through
Kendy's user data logging during the 4.4 release cycle.
