Toolbars and menu customization

The Welkin Suite gives you the ability not only to add or remove toolbars or menus but also to customize the set of commands for any toolbar / menu. You can do this with the help of the Customize window. Here are two ways to open it:

  • navigate to the Main Menu: Tools ⇒ Customize,
  • right-click on the toolbar area and select the Customize option.

The Customize window consists of two tabs for different purposes:

  • Toolbars — for adding, deleting, or moving toolbars,
  • Commands — for managing the set of commands in any toolbar or menu, and for adding, deleting, or moving any menu.

Customizing an existing toolbar or menu

To customize a set of commands of any toolbar or menu, open the Customize window and go to the Commands tab.

  • Add Command — allows you to add any existing command to the menu / toolbar. Click on this button and select a necessary command from a list,
