Kelly Vaughn, it seems like you just read the title of this thread and not much else. With due respect to the effort you put in explaining how to use the Quick Tools, if you actually read the comments you will realize that most users here are well aware of its existence, and the issues described here go a little deeper than figuring out how to right click on the toolbar to select "quick tools". QT is the single tiny portion of the UI that's somewhat customizeable, but extremely limited. In fact, if you enable the other toolbars e.g. File, Edit, Navigation tools, etc., then the Quick Tools portion of the toolbar is pushed so far to the right that it becomes unusable. You can't even rearrange these separate toolbars, e.g. if you wanted to have the Quick Tools all the way to the left.
The larger point you are missing is that a lot of the UI space is wasted, especially the non-customizeable parts. The entire UI needs to have a ribbon-like interface with smaller buttons, less empty space around and between, and it needs to be more tactile and responsive, like in so many other productivity apps. In fact, if the UI was well done, like in those other softwares, it wouldn't need to be very customizeable, because everything the user needs would be available and accessible. And if panels can be docked/undocked, it would be even better.
