trimmed down sidebar

The content in the 4 open sections (Character, Number Format, Alignment, Cell
Appearance) of the properties tab in the sidebar in calc are so long that they
dont fit on my 1440x900 screen resolution or lower, so it would be useful trim
their contents.

Number Format:
* Removal of 'Category:' label as its redundant
* Move the number, percentage and currency buttons to the right of the number
format drop down and remove the date and label buttons as they are not as
frequently used and are easily selectable in the drop down

* Removing/Hiding the 'text orientation:' subsection or alternatively just
leaving the label and the angle rotation field.

Cell Appearance:
* Removing 'show cell grid lines' checkbox as its not a property of a cell but
is of the sheet and its is not a frequently unused feature
* Removing 'cell border:' label as its redundant

It would also be nice to change the label 'Cell background' to just
'Background' as the section is already called 'Cell Appearance'. Also the label
'Left indent' should be changed to 'Indent' as it stores the indent value
whether it is from the right or left indent, as it is similarly labeled in the

The attached mockup comes to a height of about 600 pixels which will fit
sufficiently on lower end screen resolutions (e.g. 1280x768) if the formatting
toolbar was hidden.

Having a smaller sidebar will also benefit in the future when a styles section
is added to provide easily selectability of cell styles.
