Context toolbar UX inconsistence

Recommended Posts

For us who do not use Tool palette, when using tool shortcuts Context toolbar will show tool name we are using at the moment. N - Pencil, P - Pen, M - Rectangle/Ellipse. Very helpful!

But with Art text and Frame text tools -  Tool titles are missing from the context toolbar. Since controls for those two are exactly the same, there is no way of telling whether we are in Art or Frame Text 'mode' (to be honest, status bar gives a hint, but still). It would be nice if those tools would consistently follow the convention set up by other tools and display Tool names in the context toolbar.


Example 1, Pen tool - context toolbar includes tool name.


Example 2, Text (Art or Frame?) tool - context toolbar omits tool name.
