Feature request #8201
Enhance disabling/enabling toolbars (and panels)
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||17019|
With a lot of plugins installed, the number of toolbars and panels soon reach a confusing stage where users would like to be able to easily clean and adjust their working environment according to their actual needs.
Disabling/enabling toolbars is a trial-and-error game, cause it's not easy to identify which toolbar has which name in the list.
In addition to that, the dropdowns close after disabling/enabling each single item, so adjusting tollbars/panels needs a lot of repetitive actions (and even more of them, when the wrong toolbar/panel was chosen beforehand).
It would be nice if:
1. the toolbar "handles" in front of the icons would display the toolbar name as a tooltip just like the icons themselves. By this, users would be able to learn the toolbars names and their included functionalities.
2. the dropdowns would not close after each disable/enable action, but only by clicking on the canvas or somewhere else than the dropdown. By this, it would be far quicker and less confusing to select/unselect the needed toolbars/panels.

- Status changed from Open to Closed
I think https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/2180 addresses your first point: tooltips on handles.
And by adding 'Toolbars' and 'Panels' as 'titles' it is much more clear which item to use.
I'm not sure if a 'context-menu' should stay open, as then there is no way to CLOSE it (a context menu does not have a close action/icon).
So closing this one for now. Please issue a feature request for your second point, or discuss it on UIX mailinglist.
