Customize Toolbars

43 Views, 4 Replies

Is it possible to create icons for commands that don't ahve them? Document Settings, for example. This would save a ton of space.

I think a VBA macro could be made to cause a Alt-T-S but I fail to see what space this
would save?

I want to have some commands on toolbars as opposed to menus. Some of the commands don't have icons associated with them. I don't want to see the whole command name on the GUI. For example, "Save Copy As..." does not have it's own icon. If I want it in the toolbar, it takes up too much space. (BTW, I don't like Alt functions, as you have to look down to use them.) I was wondering if you can creat your own icons for them. (Like AutoCAD)

You can create icons that associate to VBA macros. AFAIK VBA macros are the only way you
are going to currently create new commands. That is what I was saying about the Alt
Function...... I think a macro could be made that sends those keystrokes. (I am not 100%
positive as I haven't tried it but I would guess it is possible. ) you could then add the
macro to a toolbar as a toolbutton, and associate a picture to it.

Yes you can use Send Keys..

here is a fun one I got from Kevin

(paste these in your default.ivb)

Public Sub Browser_HideShow()
SendKeys "%v", False
SendKeys "t", False
SendKeys "b", True
End Sub

Save copy as would be

Public Sub SaveCopyAs()
SendKeys "%f", False
SendKeys "a", True
End Sub

document settings

Public Sub DocSets()
SendKeys "%t", False
SendKeys "s", True
End Sub
