I also found the slidebar in the control panel confusing. We could do
tabs, thereby making more space for icons, but then it occurred to me:
Why does Control Panel run as a "popup" (i.e. layered over something
in the background) and not like any other activity (i.e. fullscreen) ?
Even the Journal runs fullscreen. We'd get more space and will be able
to use menus, etc.
While I'm at it, here's another thing that might be useful, esp. in
