+1 from me for the initial suggestion for visible formatting.
re: your question about how it could be improved timo, a user-selectable OPTION in settings could prevent dissatisfaction of users who "would disagree with such a change?"
So, on Windows specifically, perhaps offer a toggle in Settings that allows me to show or hide the WYSIWIG formatting toolbar:
- SHOW an always-visible formatting toolbar in the ribbon bar area (of course just providing access to the same format options as the context menu provides), or
- HIDE it and revert to the exact same functionality as it has today accessible via context menu
