Well this discussion would only focus on the default interface layout, but even
if we include the other interface layouts, all but the tabbed notebookbar
utilize the sidebar.

As mentioned above in comment 1, "... the majority of them havent shifted over
to widescreen yet, but provide in their template selector dialog an easy means
of seeing 4:3 and 16:9 templates to choose from." This statement is true for
iwork keynote, calligra stage, corel presentation x7, and used to also be true
for GDrive when i made that comment.

The simplest solution is to do the same and create a black 4:3 and 16:9
templates that the users can select from when the template manager appears.

As the sidebar contains all formatting, transition and animation options,
collapsing the sidebar isnt an option. Even with new UI layouts, most will rely
on the sidebar.
