In general, I stay away from using toolbars. I think my attitude is
colored by a bad experience I had with Word, once. I wanted to
accomplish something, I can't remember what, and the manual told me to
"click on the (imagine an icon here) tool." Well, I didn't see that tool
anywhere. It took me awhile to figure out that I had to modify the
toolbar before I could perform a relatively minor function. I was
disgusted. The function may have been available in some other way, but
the manual didn't mention it...
