Form Field Editor Toolbar

The form field editor toolbar is enabled when in form editing mode. To start form editing mode and show the toolbar go to Forms > Create/Edit Form on the menu or use the shortcut keys Ctrl + Shift + M (⌘ + Shfit + M on Mac). In form editing mode, most tools will be hidden and only navigation, form fields, properties, and alignment options will remain.

 

The default form editor toolbar is setup as displayed above but can be customized using one of the methods below:

Drag and Drop

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

Floating Tools

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.
