I gave the 2015.1 a second try (next to a closer look to Affinity Photo) and immediately found a bug (or a feature?):

I configured the tool bar and disabled the icon for the screen mode (don't know the exact name in the english version. lowest icon on my screenshot) as I always use the shortcut "F".
Unfortunately, it is not just the icon that is not shown anymore, but the whole functionality is gone. Pressing "F" has no effect. Activating the icon makes this function work again.

All the other icons that I remove from the "official" toolbar to the "..." tray still work. Why not the view mode? Is this a bug or did your developers have something certain in mind with it?

OK, I can reproduce that.
We'll take a look and see what's going wrong.

Hi Phillip,

At the bottom of the Toolbar customization dialog is a checkbox that says "Disable Shortcuts for Hidden Toolbar Extras".  As a result, if you leave this checked (as it is by default) and hide any tool, then that shortcut will also not work.  I'm sure if you go double-check, you'll be able to verify that this is the behavior that you are seeing.  If you want to hide the tool but still have the shortcut work, simply uncheck this box.

Thank you for your answers.

@david: That was too easy. It's even written next to the icon, I wanted to disappear. ... Shame on me. :)
