As you would like to switch exclusively to the sidebar, then IBM Symphony's
single toolbar row, plus contextual toolbar, is the best way to achieve this. I
have gathered quite a bit of info on how this can be made possible at <
https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/boards/1/topics/163 >. You can see a
screenshot of Symphony's single toolbar row at -

I think you can fix the table toolbar popup issue by moving it to the top next
to the standard or formatting toolbars. I have been working on bringing the
table toolbar options into the sidebar. More details can be found at <
https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/boards/1/topics/121 > and a mockup can
be seen at -
