Toolbars

Toolbars manages and organises various commands in SysCAD in logical ways so that you can find and use them quickly.

Toolbar groups can be easily customised - for example, you can add and remove buttons, hide or display toolbars, or move and dock them at different locations of the screen. Some SysCAD commands will open a small Floating toolbar when called. This can easily be switched off (closed) by clicking the close icon Close icon.png at the top right of the floating toolbar.
