Customize Your Toolbars


Sometimes the best way to shave work time off of the average life of a typical report is to customize WinTOTAL so that your favorite functions are available with only one click. HoverLinks provide one way to do this, but if you prefer to update the main toolbars at the top of WinTOTAL, you can do that as well. To create a custom toolbar:

  1. From either the Appraisal Desktop or WinTOTAL, right-click any toolbar you would like to customize and click Customize in the menu that appears.
  2. In the screen that appears, click New in the Toolbars.
  3. Type a name for your new toolbar and click OK to create it.
  4. An empty toolbar titled with the name you specified appears on your screen.  Click the Commands tab and simply drag and drop any of the available commands into the blank toolbar on your screen to build your custom toolbar.


  5. Once you’ve added all of the menu items that you want in your custom toolbar, click its title bar, drag it to the current toolbars’ location and drop it at a comfortable anchor point to replace the current active toolbar.
  Hint: While you can drag and drop any of the primary menu items like the full File, Edit, and View menus into your custom toolbar, you may want to add only a portion of that menu into the custom toolbar.  For instance, if you regularly use the copy and paste commands in WinTOTAL’s Edit menu, you may want to consider adding just the Copy and Paste commands into your custom toolbar instead of adding the entire Edit menu to make them more easily accessible.
