Customizing menus

The Default Menu bar is the menu bar that is displayed when no document is open in the main window. The MapForce Design menu bar is the menu bar that is displayed when one or more mappings are open. Each menu bar can be customized separately, and customization changes made to one do not affect the other.

 

To customize a menu bar, select it from the Show Menus For drop-down list. Then click the Commands tab and drag commands from the Commands list box to the menu bar or into any of the menus.

 

Deleting commands from menus and resetting the menu bars

To delete an entire menu or a command inside a menu, do the following:

 

1.Select one of the following from the Show Menus for drop-down list:

 

Default Menu (this shows available menus when no document is open)

MapForce Design (this shows available menus when a mapping is open)

 

2.With the Customize dialog open, select (i) the menu you want to delete from the application's menu bar, or (ii) the command you want to delete from one of these menus.

3.Either (i) drag the menu from the menu bar or the menu command from the menu, or (ii) right-click the menu or menu command and select Delete.

 

You can reset any menu bar to its original installation state by selecting it from the Show Menus For drop-down list and then clicking the Reset button.

 

Customizing the application's context menus

Context menus are the menus that appear when you right-click certain objects in the application's interface. Each of these context menus can be customized by doing the following:
