How do I hide the pdf toolbar? 

How do I move the toolbars around? 

How do I make the new arrangement the default?

I would be happy to have major portions of the main toolbar down one 
side or the other of the main window, like Inkscape. In the Story 
Editor I would happily sacrifice the strike through and underline 
icons altogether. I doubt that I will ever use them. I use the icons 
at the left end and the right end frequently, and those are the ones 
hidden in submenus.
