Icons in the toolbar are shortcuts for various commands, most of which are also available as menu commands. You can make any toolbars visible/invisible using the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog (Tools | Customize). To move a toolbar, drag its handle to the desired location. The available toolbars are described below.
The Comparison Mode toolbar (see screenshot below) enables you to select a comparison mode for files and directories. This group of commands is available in the Diff and Merge menu.
The Diff and Merge toolbar (see screenshot below) enables you to start comparisons, navigate through differences between files, merge differences, and set application and comparison options. All these commands are available in the Diff and Merge menu and in the Tools menu.
The Directory Content toolbar (see screenshot below) enables you to configure the display of Directory Comparison windows. Note that—except for the directory synchronization commands, which are included in the Diff and Merge menu—these commands are available only as toolbar buttons. To find out more about commands in the Directory Content toolbar, see Configuring the View and Running a Directory Comparison.
The Grid toolbar (see screenshot below) is enabled in Grid View in File Comparison windows. With the Grid commands, you can make structural editing changes and modify the Grid View of your XML document. Only well-formed XML documents can be seen in Grid View mode.
The commands below, which are available only as toolbar buttons, enable you to take the following actions in Grid View mode:
• (Expand all selected): Expands one or more selected nodes in Grid View.
• (Collapse all selected): Collapses the selected nodes.
• (Fully expand all selected): Expands all selected nodes and their descendant nodes.
• (Collapse unselected): Collapses all selected nodes and their descendant nodes.
• (Optimal widths): Sets columns to optimal widths.
Icons in the Grid Edit toolbar (see screenshot below) are used for editing in Grid View. For information about these commands, see Grid View Menu. This toolbar is deactivated by default. If you want to make the toolbar visible in the interface, select the menu command Tools | Customize and check the box Grid Edit in the Toolbars tab.
