Description Zeki 2013-01-08 18:44:30 UTC

Okular is a great viewer and also a note taker applicatioin. But if you have a smaller screen or a widescreen laptop, the document area restricts to zoom out the document and gives less space for the page.

I think it will be very good to have the functions to hide/move/edit the toolbars and the statusbar. 

When viewing a page of an article, this toolbars limits the vertical space in a portrait document. The same may be applied in landscape docs, to hide/move or edit the left toolbar for browsing and editing.

I think it will be possible, some KDE apps allow this (for ex. former Koffice and Calligra SUite etc)

This feauture will really increase reding confort of users.

I am attaqching a simple drawing which may explain this request easier than me&my English.

Best regards,

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Docked toolbars and UI

Expected Results:  
Configurable toolbars and UI

You already can:
- Hide the menubar (File/Edit/View/…) in Settings → uncheck Show Menubar
- Hide the toolbar in Settings → uncheck Show Toolbar
- Move the toolbar to another side of the window or have it as free floating window, right click the toolbar → Lock Toolbars and drag the toolbar around using the handle that appears on the left of the toolbar
- Hide the status bar in Settings → Show page navigation bar. You can add a Page indicator to the toolbar (like I do because the status bar wastes space) by right clicking the toolbar, choosing Configure Toolbars, choosing Main Toolbar <okular_part> and on the left there is a "Page number" widget that you can add
- Make the icons on the left (content, preview, bookmarks) smaller by right clicking and eg. unchecking Show Text and/or choosing a smaller icon size there

Thank you very much, i didn't know that. As i remeber it was not possible as i couln't do it.

This tips saved lots of space. The only stable part is the left sidebar, which spares less space in small icons mode.

Thank you very very much!

Best regards,

In KDE 4.10 you can also let plasma handle the menubar (Systemsettings / Appearance / Applications / Style / Fine/tuning / Menubar-style) or use plasma-widget-menubar.
