Is there a quick way to show/hide my toolbars? (Not show/hide one at a time, but all I am using)

Would not ViewFull Screen be what you need? You can toggle with Ctrl+Shift+J

@pierre-yves samyn I believe this time yours is the better and faster solution :)

This is good if you want a single fullscreen window, but doesn't help if you want multiple windows alongside each other on a single monitor.

You can do this with a macro. The macro is a toggle; if toolbars on it will turn off; if toolbars off it will turn on. Macro:

Sub Toggle_Toolbar
     Dim oLayoutManager as Object
     oLayoutManager = thisComponent.CurrentController.Frame.LayoutManager
     If oLayoutManager.isVisible then
        oLayoutManager.visible = 0
        oLayoutManager.visible = 1
     End If
End Sub

It would be best to add this as a new menu/item ( use Tools->Customize then Menu tab) so as to be able to toggle on/off when wanted. If you are unfamiliar with either macros or adding a menu item, see the LO Getting Started Documentation, Chapters 13 & 14 for clarification.


Sample with new menu item after Help: ToolBarsOnOff.odt

I may be wrong but I believe you also would need to install Java JRE for this to work.
