3.1.8 Toolbar configurations

Most tools have toolbars offering one-click access to frequently-used commands. For example, the Editor has a toolbar for operating on source code.

Figure 3.1 The Editor's source operations toolbar

You may prefer to remove such toolbars. On Windows you can undock the toolbar by dragging it away from the Editor window, or you can also hide it via the context menu anywhere within the toolbar. You can control whether a tool displays its toolbars by the option Show Toolbar .

To hide toolbars for the active tool:

  1. Choose Tools > Preferences... .
  2. The Preferences dialog for the active window appears.

  3. Select the General tab.
  4. Uncheck Show Toolbar and press OK to confirm the dialog.

Note: The functionality of each toolbar is available elsewhere. For example the Editor's source code operations are also available on the Buffer , Definitions and Expression menus.
