Hi, :-)

2010/10/15 Jon Hamkins <>
The main reason why most toolbars aren't vertical is because most languages
read horizontally, and therefore it makes most sense to put text
horizontally, not vertically, to make it simple to read.
Icon-only toolbars, like the "Insert" toolbar/Drawing toolbox, and sidebar
are vertical.

If you're a power user, one might prefer to have a purely
icon/tooltip-based interface?
