The shyness of the mini toolbar might be the most frustrating part of using
it. If you move the mouse away from the mini toolbar, it fades away. If you
immediately move back toward the mini toolbar, it comes back. If you use the
mouse for some other task, such as scrolling, the mini toolbar permanently
goes away. In this case, you might have to reselect the text to get the mini
toolbar to come back.

the formula for a selected cell was longer than the formula bar, the for-

cases, the formula would obscure the first few rows of the worksheet. This
was frustrating, especially if the selected cell was in the top few rows of
the spreadsheet.
