With the notebookbar coming out of experimental I'm assuming it will be 
selected from the "User Interface" item on the "View" menu, as now when the 
user permits experimental features.

This gives 9 options, of which 6 relate to an MS Office type of menu system. I 
can't help thinking this will confuse as many people as it impresses. Has a 
decision been made as to which option is the default for a user selecting the 
notebookbar rather than the classic menu? Perhaps a one-click method to toggle 
between the default notebookbar and classic menu should be considered.

Yep, I agree! Drew, it's a great idea and thanks for working on it, but
I think we need to focus on one thing at a time with the messaging.
Otherwise people may get the idea that LibreOffice is too complicated,
can't decide on a cohesive interface etc.

The NotebookBar is going to be a big deal for LO 6.2, so we need to
focus on one or two variants of it and say:

* What it is (a new, OPTIONAL user interface design -- we're not
changing everything! Otherwise we'll get a huge amount of angry comments
on social media ;-) )

* Why it's great (work with items in context, faster workflow etc.)

* How to try it -- and super important, how to go back!

IMO we need to simultaneously communicate that LibreOffice 6.2 has the
same reliable, trusted, familiar user interface as previous releases,
but is also modern, forward-looking and adaptable. This isn't easy, but
if we do it right and not overload people with lots of information and
screenshots, I think we can make it work...
