 > I mentioned this in Slack but feel worth adding to the ticket. In most
 cases I am the first to suggest user testing. This however is a
 complicated issue that easily has bias. I'm not saying it shouldn't have
 testing, I think the general feeling is yes we need feedback from this.
 However, user testing isn't the only form we can get that. If we have this
 in beta and as has been suggested, in a post, then the feedback there is
 our testing.

 Agreed. I was actually quite surprised to see that in my super limited
 "observation" all five users didn't close the bottom row after using it. I
 also had to tell two of the three new users that there is a bottom row...

 If this is the case for most users, the buttons in the bottom row would
 actually be "higher priority" as they would be slightly closer when moving
 the mouse from the editor body to the toolbars.
