Adding and Removing Buttons on a Toolbar

To add a button to an existing toolbar, follow these steps:

1 If the toolbar you want to customize is not visible, click View, Toolbars and then click the name of the toolbar.

2 Click Tools, Customize, Toolbars. The Customize dialog box appears.

3 Click the Commands tab.

Categories of commands, such as File, Format, and Tracking, appear on the left side of the dialog box. The commands within the selected category appear on the right side of the dialog box (see Figure 26-1).

Figure 26-1. You can drag commands from the list in the Customize dialog box to a toolbar or menu.

4 Click the category of the command you want to add.

If you don't know the category to which it belongs, select a generic or all-inclusive category, such as All Commands or All Macros.

5 Drag the command you want to add from the command list to the toolbar. The mouse pointer changes to an I-beam to indicate where the command will be placed. Move the mouse pointer until the I-beam is in the location you want and then release the mouse button.

Tip Add a menu to a toolbar

To add a built-in menu to a toolbar, open the Customize dialog box and click the Commands tab. Click Built-In Menus and then drag the menu you want from the Commands box to its new position on the toolbar.

To add a custom menu to a toolbar, click New Menu in the Categories box and drag the menu name from the Commands box to the toolbar. Right-click the new menu on the toolbar, type a name in the Name box on the shortcut menu, and then press Enter. After naming the menu, you can drag commands or menus to the new menu. Right-click a menu entry to modify the button images and text.
