Wishlist: Rethink preset values / layout for the case when tool bar is too long

Bug Description

With the new gtk3 buttons, the tool bar for the text tool becomes too long for me to see the last three items (pristine Linux Mint 18 Xfce with a 4:3 screen, trunk ppa).

The drop down for letter rotation, where preset values are available only, isn't very useful (and the keyboard shortcut doesn't work with a German keyboard), as it doesn't allow for any fine-tuning.

Is it (somehow) possible to allow to actually enter real values into a real input field for these kinds of items in a dropdown? Or to make the tool bar wrap? Or make it scrollable?
Or allow to click on a button and then show the other half of the tool bar?

(The only workaround I know is: I can make the window larger and move it.
I cannot assign a different keyboard shortcut which can work with my keyboard because it's not available in the keyboard shortcuts list.)
