Toolbar Configuration ( Modeling & Drawing Editor ) (' Classic ' only)
- Toolbar Configuration lets you add items to -- or remove items from -- toolbars in Modeling (classic) or the Drawing Editor (classic). Press the " Launcher manager " button to create a new icon.
- Different configuration files are used in Modeling and the Drawing Editor . In the classic interface, toolbar configurations, context menu configurations, keyboard configurations and mode configurations are all in the same file, and they are therefore loaded and saved together.
- Toolbar Configuration is not available when User and Site Options > " Modeling layout style " or " Drawing Editor layout style " is set to ' Lightning '. For the lightning interface, tools can be added to the ribbon using the Ribbon Editor . Also, ribbon configurations, keyboard shortcuts, context menu configurations are stored in separate files, any of which can can be used for different roles.

Step-by-step instructions :

Method 1 : Choose Settings > Toolbar Configuration .
Method 2 : Click the Toolbar Configuration icon, which is pictured above. If the icon is not currently on your toolbar, you can add it using Toolbar Configuration .
Method 3 : Use a keyboard shortcut .

3a : Select the " Command group " that you want (for instance, select ' View Commands '). As you change the command group, the icons or decorations within that group are displayed on the selection list. If more icons exist than can be shown on the list at one time, use the scroll bars to scroll down the list, thus causing additional icons to be shown.
3b : Drag the icon or decoration onto the toolbar where you want it located. Dragging is done with the left mouse button. When you release the left mouse button, the icon is placed on the toolbar at the position of your mouse pointer ( ). To remove an icon from a toolbar, drag it off the toolbar.
3c : Repeat steps 3a and 3b as many times as you like. When you are done making changes to your toolbars, press the " OK " button at the bottom of the window.

Unless you entered an entirely new configuration file name, another ok-cancel dialog opens -- press " OK " to overwrite the old file.
Alternative 2 : Press " Cancel " to have your changes saved in RAM only. During your current session of Modeling or the Drawing Editor , the toolbar will be configured as you have specified. However, when you exit the Modeling or Drawing Editor program and restart, your changes will be forgotten and the toolbar will be configured as it was before step 2.
