Quick Access Toolbar

The Quick Access Toolbar is a customizable toolbar that contains a set of commands that are independent of the tab that is currently displayed. You can move the Quick Access Toolbar from one of the two possible locations, and you can add buttons that represent commands to the Quick Access Toolbar.

The Quick Access Toolbar can be located in one of two places:

Upper-left corner next to the AutoTRAX Button

Below the Ribbon

If you don't want the Quick Access Toolbar to be displayed in its current location, you can move it to another location. If you find that the default location next to the AutoTRAX Button  is too far from your work area to be convenient, you may want to move it closer to your work area. Since location below the Ribbon encroaches on the work area, to maximize the work area, you may want to keep the Quick Access Toolbar in its default location.

In the menu item list, click Show Below the Ribbon or Show Above the Ribbon.

NOTES

You cannot increase the size of the buttons representing the commands by an option in AutoTRAX. The only way to increase the size of the buttons is to lower the screen resolution you use.

You cannot display the Quick Access Toolbar on multiple lines.

Only commands can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. The contents of most lists, such as indent and spacing values and individual styles, which also appear on the Ribbon, cannot be added to the Quick Access Toolbar.
