Quick and dirty solution: use smaller font size for UI.
That helps a bit (and that's what I do usually) but I wanted to show
the default configuration.

Two words: wacom users :)
I am a wacom user myself and find the menus easy enough to get to for
all of these functions, except for undo and redo which are indeed nice
to have just a click away. Do you click new/save/print/preferences
etc. very often that getting them from the menu is not convenient
As a side note, if you want a wacom with no keyboard interaction at
all, you probably have one with so called express keys and configuring
those to perform those actions is actually very efficient. I
personally have my left keys set to: Control, Alt, Shift, Meta; and my
right ones set to: C, V, X, Z, which gives access to most commonly
What we really need is costomizable toolbars
I realize that and completely agree... but are those anywhere near
completion in GDK? Jon Cruz was talking about them a while ago and he
seemed to be almost ready to code them from scratch for Inkscape only.
What's the status of this?
