Customize

The customize command lets you customize StyleVision to suit your personal needs.

 

Commands tab

The Commands tab of the Customize dialog allows you to place individual commands in the menu bar and the toolbar.

 

menu_customize_commandsStd

 

To add a command to the menu bar or toolbar, select the command in the Commands pane of the Commands tab, and drag it to the menu bar or toolbar. When the cursor is placed over a valid position an I-beam appears, and the command can be dropped at this location. If the location is invalid, a check mark appears. When you drop the command it is created as an icon if the command already has an associated icon; otherwise the command is created as text. After adding a command to the menu bar or toolbar, you can edit its appearance by right-clicking it and then selecting the required action.

 

To delete a menu bar or toolbar item, with the Customize dialog open, right-click the item to be deleted, and select Delete.

 

Note:

 

The customization described above applies to the application, and applies whether a document is open in StyleVision or not.
To reset menus and toolbars to the state they were in when StyleVision was installed, go to the Toolbars tab and click the appropriate Reset button.

 

Toolbars tab

The Toolbars tab allows you to activate or deactivate specific toolbars, to show text labels for toolbar items, and to reset the menu bar and toolbars to their installation state.

 

menu_customize_toolbarsStd

 

The StyleVision interface displays a fixed menu bar and several optional toolbars (Design Filter, Format, Standard, Table, and Table of Contents).

 

Each toolbar can be divided into groups of commands. Commands can be added to a toolbar via the Commands tab. A toolbar can be dragged from its docked position to any location on the screen. Double-clicking a toolbar's (maximized or minimized) title bar docks and undocks the toolbar.

 

In the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog, you can toggle a toolbar on and off by clicking in its checkbox. When a toolbar is selected (in the Toolbars tab), you can cause the text labels of that toolbar's items to be displayed by clicking the Show text labels check box. You can also reset a selected toolbar to the state it was in when StyleVision was installed by clicking the Reset button. You can reset all toolbars and the menu bar by clicking the Reset All button.

 

Note about Menu Bar

Commands can be added to, and items deleted from, the menu bar: see Commands above. To reset the menu bar to the state it was in when StyleVision was installed, select Menu Bar in the Toolbars tab of the Customize dialog, and click the Reset button. (Clicking the Reset All button will reset the toolbars as well.)
