Just yesterday struggling with making a presentation with LO Impress.
There are some 3 dozen toolbars of which I was looking for some.
The online docs give one line of text for each -- no icon.

So the only way to figure which is 9say) the drawing toolbar
is to keep on turning it on and off in the menu and squint to see
 what part of the screen changes.  Quite a chore given how noisy 
the screen is

In short:
No MS fan here however MS Office is way better documented than LO.
