Can you point me to the past discussion?  I did a superficial search before reporting but didn't see any bug descriptions that matched.


Of course, I'm aware that KDE toolbars can be customised by each user. 

My opinion is that 
i) it would be of benefit to digikam to make the suggested actions available, because it becomes faster to access these most frequently accessed actions for everyone.

ii) a separate Edit toolbar is a better implementation than just adding every action to the Main toolbar, because it separates tasks and allows the Edit toolbar to be moved independently of the Main toolbar.  You will agree, this is only possible by editing the ui rc files manually.

So instead of asking you to make this possible, I am suggesting that it would be a good idea to implement the already possible in the standard configuration.

NB - i am not a usability expert, and my only user research is watching my gf laboriously rotate every portrait image by hand when downloading photos.  This is just a hunch - oh, and I did some 'competitor analysis' of f-spot and saw that it has actions in toolbars (aside from its killer feature of instant-apply Crop and no Undo :P)
