Hi all

I want to discuss one question about QGIS GUI. There are several
toolbars with buttons in QGIS, some buttons have similar appointment.
For example there are five buttons for adding layers and all this buttons
needs space on toolbar.

What do you think about replacing this buttons (and similar) with one
button with dropdown menu [1] as we already see in Select, Measure
and Annotation tools? This will save some extra space on toolbar.

I think this can be done for add layer buttons in QGIS and export map
buttons in Composer. Also may be for zoom buttons in QGIS
