Toolbars are areas in an application window that contain frequently used commands. These commands are normally found in the main menu. However, going to the main menu to save or add a record can be time consuming, so the frequently used icon buttons are available on a toolbar.
You can identify what the icon does by it's tooltip. Move your mouse over one of the items, pause for a short time then see a text description pop up over the icon to explain what this icon does.
Displaying Captions Or A Different Icon Size
Some of the toolbars can display large icons, text or both. The Main Toolbar and the Section Toolbar can be configured accordingly.
To show Large, Medium or Small Icons, Captions or Both
NOTE: Not all toolbars have the option to change the toolbar's display.
Right Click on the desired Toolbar you want to change, then choose from the popup menu which style option to display:
Small Icons: Shows the display icons as 16x16 icons.
Medium Icons: Shows the display icons as 24x24 icons.
Large Icons: Shows the display icons as 32x32 icons.
Show Captions Under Icon: Shows the descriptive caption text directly under the icon button.
Show Captions on the Side: Shows the descriptive caption text directly to the right of the icon.
Do Not Show Captions: Completely hides the caption so only the icon remains.
Right-click on the toolbar and choose where you would like to dock that toolbar. You can move a toolbar around by left-click and hold then drag a bar to a new position, if applicable. Toolbars can only be moved when unlocked.
