 Hello Joshua

If you mean where I would like a "logging on / off" icon and if by the
'toolbar' you mean the structure on the left hand side of the window,
then its the toolbar.

 The split track function is useful but not useful enough to justify
having the right hand side "Control Panel" (if thats what you call it)
displayed all the time. So, I'd be happy to click the toolbar icon
twice to achieve the same effect.
The "load track" and "clear" buttons are really used once you are
reviewing collected data and are fine remaining in the control panel
tab. I'd suggest that tab remain where it is pretty much unchanged and
regard the toolbar icon I am requesting as an alternative way to work.

Keyboard shortcuts might also be another useful alternative, ctrl-l to
toggle logging, maybe something to zoom in or out....

 Do you mean the popup/context menu, or the toolbar?

 Also, what about the `split track', and `load track' functions?
