Customize your toolbars and menus

Create your own toolbars and menus.

Do you find that you have lots of toolbars open but only use a couple of buttons on each one? Do you regularly use just a few fonts but have to scroll through the entire font list every time? If so, you could create your own toolbar with the buttons that you want on it or your own menu with your favorite fonts.

When you've finished reading this page, click the Next button to continue the lesson on your own.


Find out how to create your own menus and toolbars from scratch. You can then populate the menu or toolbar with built-in commands and buttons, as described in the previous lesson, or even create your own. You can also add custom commands to built-in or personal menus and toolbars.

Whether you build a toolbar, a menu, or both, is personal choice, and will probably depend on what you generally use the most, menus or toolbars.
