I guess my questions where too general, so here some specifics. It's ok to say "no idea about that, it's too early" of course :)

How much is the minimal amount of the buttons at the top for desktop, in pixels and in amount of buttons?

Will there be buttons for usual file handling like "open", "save" and "print"?

Do you plan that people could make their own buttons and functionality for the toolbar?

Can the user add or remove buttons from the toolbar (like Word used to have before the ribbon)?

Will the toolbar be like old Word, or more like the modern Ribbon?

Can I show and hide parts or all of the toolbar per script?

Can the field still be used by my own code, for example for code coloring and intendation?

Still would prefer some screenshots.

Will you be at the conference next week? Maybe you can simple show your stuff to me there, and then I can decide :)
