Hi Fabian,
    If you're referring to the toolbar in the visualization window, 
that can be hidden using the viewer's popup menu. Right click in the 
visualization window, select "Customize->Hide toolbar" and the 
toolbar will disappear, leaving more space for graphics. You can also 
hide the toolbar for all windows using an adjacent menu option. If 
you save settings then this preference should be used for future 
VisIt sessions.

Could you elaborate on the focus problems you're having?

I like the idea of more user-customization. I'll certainly keep this 
in mind for some of the 2.0 changes I plan on making.
