Hiding the draw toolbar doesnt mean that it cant be shown by View > Toolbars >
Drawing. Most people who double click on the chart arent looking to add shapes
to it, so there isnt a need to have the drawing toolbar shown by default.

Most users expecting to modify a chart dont consider that they can copy and
paste things into the chart, but of course for those who wish to do so, the
right-click context menu will always be the fastest way to get to these

Yes this is always an ongoing problem that i'm facing any time i add new
buttons to the toolbar that doesnt have icons, which results in me having to
create icons for them. :D
