The Office Style Ribbon Toolbar is the default layout and where you will find all of the functions in PDF Studio. If you wish, you can switch to the Classic Toolbar in Toolbar Preferences. The Classic Toolbar is where you will find all of the most commonly used functions in PDF Studio and the remaining features can be found in the top menus.
The default toolbar is setup as displayed above (in the Pro version) but can be customized using one of the methods below:
To rearrange the tools on the toolbar using drag and drop, click on the divider line to the left of the tool group you wish to move, and then drag and drop it into new position. You can move any of the tool groups to any location on the toolbar. A third row can be created by dragging a tool group below the second row to create a third row.
You can also create a bottom toolbar by dragging the tools and dropping them on the bottom of the PDF Studio window
You can access the Toolbar Preferences dialog using either of the following methods:
Tools can also be floated in other locations for easier access. To float any of the tools from the toolbar click on the divider line to the left of the tool group you wish to float and drag your toolbar out of the toolbar section and then drop it into new position not on the top or bottom toolbar to leave it floating. To return it back to the toolbar either drag it back to a location on the toolbar or click the “X” button and it will return to its last location on the toolbar.
To reset the toolbar back to the installation defaults right click a blank space on the toolbar section and select “Reset Toolbars” option. (Note: This cannot be undone)
