Toolbar configuration

Manage toolbars and set visibility preferences using the Toolbars Configuration page.

To access the page, select Tools > Preferences (or, if you are on a Mac, Genero Studio > Preferences), then User Interface > Toolbars . Each toolbar displays as a folder.

Modifying a toolbar

Expand a toolbar folder to display its actions.

Select a toolbar or action, and use the icons or right-click to display the menu options:

  • Add a new toolbar
  • Add an action to a toolbar
  • Remove or rename a toolbar
  • Remove or rename an action
  • Add or remove a separator

Item order within a toolbar may be changed using "drag and drop".

To return all toolbars to their original settings, click the Load from Default button.

Toolbar visibility

By default, toolbar visibility is automatically calculated by Genero Studio. When a toolbar contains an action associated with the active module or framework, that toolbar will be made visible.

A toolbar can have one of three visibility settings:
The toolbar displays when any action assigned to the toolbar is within the scope of the current module or by the global framework. By default, all toolbars have their visibility set to Automatic.
Always visible
When set to "Always visible", Genero Studio displays the toolbar. The scope of any toolbar actions are not considered.
Always hidden
When set to "Always hidden", Genero Studio hides the toolbar. The scope of any toolbar actions are not considered.

Changing the toolbar's visibility setting

To change the visibility setting for a toolbar, locate the toolbar in the Visibility section. Click on the visibility value next to the toolbar name and a combobox appears. Select the desired visibility setting from the combobox.

Once you have made your changes, click the Apply button to apply your changes, or click the OK button to apply changes and close the Preferences dialog.
