The Picture is self explanatory. Divide the Toolbar into two columns. The divider is not necessary, it's only included for graphical explanation. Column one represent shortcuts always available. Column two represent shortcuts available for the current Layout. This could solve the request some users made to increase the available space on the toolbar by removing the Software Logo at the left. I suppose that logo has a valuable future purpose.

This will benefit both novice, advanced user and the purpose of Layouts.

That space is already dynamic if you observe the GO/Command box behaviour! And artificially dividing it could be restrictive.

It does, and more space will be available when the Sync icon and other notifications are applied to that Logo.

I actually like the idea of being able (in one way or another) to set a shortcut to be layout dependent. This would mitigate the need, which I've felt for years, to have folders in the shortcuts bar. One use case would be to have shortcuts to the books that I'm reading (or want to read next) be dependent on dedicated reading layouts so that those shortcuts don't clutter my study layouts.
