Thinking of that, i would fuse Ctrl-P and Ctrl-R in one setting, because you want to show the info of the city or none...

Another half-baked idea I've had for getting the citybar out of my face temporarily is some key that while I hold it down, if I move the mouse pointer over a city bar, it will temporarily roll up and disappear, revealing the terrain underneath. Letting go of the key or moving the mouse away would cause it to return.

I often find myself wanting to look at terrain on the map without city bars in the way (they often obscure terrain SW/SE of a city making it easy to miss e.g. pollution), using the key sequence Ctrl-N, Ctrl-P, Ctrl-R to hide all the bits of the city bar, and again to bring them back.

Would anyone object to Ctrl-N hiding/showing the whole city bar regardless of the other settings? Or are there people who routinely show only the production/growth on the main map without the name/flag/size? That would no longer be possible.

(I'd probably leave the non-citybar behaviour as-is, so it would still be possible to select invididual elements in that mode.)

Otherwise, might have to invent a new key sequence for "hide whole city bar", perhaps stealing one of the ones for hiding individual elements (if it's possible to hide/show the whole bar on a keypress, it seems likely that presumably-less-frequent fine-tuning of bar contents can be relegated to menus / dialogs).
