Hide Keyboard Bars [SOLVED]

I really wish I could keep the keyboard bar permantly hidden while connected to a hardware keyboard.

I’m talking about the grey bottom bar with the undo/redo/paste buttons on the left side, and the bold/italic/underline buttons on the right side. This bar can be temporarily dismissed but it’s always popping back up blocking the UI.

(I’m not even sure what this bar is really supposed to be called. In another writing app, iA Writer, there’s an option called “Hide Keyboard Bars” and this works perfectly there)


+1 to this, was just about to open this request. It really doesn’t provide much, and is a visual distraction.

I enjoy the other editors that allow it to be hidden (Ulysses does now, as well - they call it “Hide Shortcut Bar”).

I’m adding a “Disable action bar” setting for R16 that will completely disable the action bar.


Greg, we had meant this bar - it’s not terribly useful, since we already have keyboard shortcuts for these buttons
