At this preferences tab, you can add, remove and change the order of items on the Main Toolbar.

  • On the left are currently selected menus/buttons/items
  • On the right there are all available menus/buttons/items
  • Arrow buttons,source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/up.svg up and source:trunk/resources/images/dialogs/down.svg down, can be used to order items in the left list

Use cases

When to add items to the toolbar

  • Not detailed objects in area of your interest (active project or just current task)
  • Every preset you plan to use in future

When to remove items from the toolbar

  • Presets that will never be encountered in areas you would like to edit
  • Presets that will be never used because every object was entered and precisely tagged

Adding preset group as button

The numbers correspond to the red fields on the screen below:
1. entire sub-tree selected 2. and added 3. to the Toolbar


Result will look like ordinary button when not activated


All options would be provided using sub menu:

Adding one or multiple buttons from preset group

The numbers correspond to the red fields on the screen below:
1. select preset item(s)

  • one preset item selected (instead of sub-tree in example above)
  • multiple preset items can be selected using Ctrl

2. and added 3. to the toolbar


Result would be ordinary preset buttons, without sub menu.

Previously saved search results

With the search window you can create a search button. When you select such a button in the toolbar preferences tab you get three additional lines at the bottom (see screenshoot below). There you can modify the tooltip, the icon and the search expression.
