@dheadshot It's not a "copy" – the NotebookBar has some fundamental differences, and is available in various configurations. And anyway, it's totally optional and made by volunteers – if you don't like it, just don't use it!
@sudoLife That's a shame – but sometimes you have to just keep fighting. Point out recent developments, like this German state that's planning to move to LibreOffice over the next five years: https://www.golem.de/news/schleswig-holstein-bye-bye-microsoft-hello-open-source-2006-149174.html
@khaine411 Thanks! There'll be translations when people volunteer to make them! You can see the state of documentation in different languages using the navigation bar at the top: https://documentation.libreoffice.org/en/english-documentation/ – If something is missing in your language, we'd appreciate some help 👍
In 2019, LibreOffice's Design community @liboDesign worked on the NotebookBar user interface, along with menus, icons, the sidebar, a "Tip of the dialog" box dialog and much more.
