Got a screenshot? Would be happy to post that on, if it looks 
fancy enough :)

That makes sense. We have the same problem^Wfeature on macOS -- having a 
separate menu item / toolbar action would be beneficial. The same is true for 
the 'Area switching button', by the way.

It would be nice to *automatically* have these actions in the main toolbar 
next to the outline line edit, in case the menu bar got relocated.

Patches welcome I guess? :)
