How to stop menus changing in Impress

I use Impress for presenting my team's work in project review meetings. It is very disconcerting to have things continually jump around and resize on the screen. I have spent a lot of time trying to fix the menus, but it disappears as soon as I click an image (the image context menu appears) and then click on text (the text formatting menu appears).

These are my settings:

  • View > Toolbar Layout > Single Toolbar
  • View > Toolbars has the following selected:

    • Drawing, Image, Standard (Single mode) and Text Formatting

Under View, I also have the following selected:

  • Status Bar
  • Rulers
  • Sidepane
  • Views Tab Bar
  • Comments
  • Sidebar

What am I missing?

I thought the Single Toolbar setting would solve my problem but it does not. I did not see any "Lock Toolbar" or anything similar menu item.
