the toolbar takes up too much space.
i'd like to take advantage of the unused space on the menu bar

You can put menu items directly on the menu bar. By default, when you create new item on the menu bar, Resource Editor creates popup menu. Unselect popup checkbox, and new menu item is placed directly on the menu bar.
