User-Defined Toolbars and Menus

Tips & Tricks

A key factor in a fast and efficient workflow is the tools with which you are working. For this reason, RFEM and RSTAB allow free arrangement of all functions and the option to create your own toolbars and menus. Thus, it is possible to meet users' individual needs:

~ Open the ‘Customize’ dialog box (Options -> Configuration Manager -> 3. Toolbars and pull‑down menus -> Toolbars).
~ Create a new toolbar using the ‘New User‑Defined Toolbar’ button. A blank toolbar appears in the center of the screen.
~ Open the ‘Commands’ tab.
~ Look up the desired command by categories.
~ Select the command and drag it to the new toolbar while holding down the left mouse button.
~ Repeat this step until the toolbar includes all the commands you want.
~ Then, drag the new toolbar (cursor in the gray area above the commands) to its final location. The toolbar can be docked to all four sides of the screen.
~ Close the ‘Customize’ window.

Please ensure that you do not drag any commands to the standard toolbars and menus. During the installation after updates, the predefined toolbars are always overwritten. The user-defined toolbars and menus are compatible and remain after an update.

In the ‘Configuration Manager’ dialog box, you can use the ‘Export Configuration as File’ option to save the entire setting including all other objects (colors, options, borders, etc.).
