Customizing progeCAD - Customizing toolbars

Creating a new toolbar

You can create a new toolbar by dragging a tool from the Customize dialog box and dropping it anywhere except on another toolbar. progeCAD immediately creates a new toolbar and assigns it a default name. Then you can add tools to the new toolbar. You can also add, delete, or modify tools on any existing toolbar.

When you create a toolbar using tools from the Buttons area of the Customize dialog box, the ToolTip, Help String, and Command fields are filled in automatically with default information. You can edit this information for each tool.
