No favorites toolbar

#1 Post by rider45 » 09.04.2020, 04:01

I can not find any way to turn on the Favorites Toolbar? There is nothing in the "View or View Show" menu. The Favorites tree works fine but i do not like it in my tree panel.

Also in the "define action tools bar" you have 2 favorites folders commands both with the same description?

Update, figured it out after looking thru many forum post. Should be turned on by default after install also should be in in "View\Show" so you can turn it on\off.

It is in menu at View > Favorites Tree (ALT F).

You're right, I pointed to the wrong function.

The button for Favorites Toolbar can be found in Tools > Favorite tools (where also Define action toolbar is located)

It has been described as well in FC-help.

Thanks ralfso

Favorite tools was not in my Tools menu had to add it from the define menu. FC should still have a way to hide it in the (View\Show menu) if you want to hide it.

It's a bit confusing - there are "favorite folders" and "favorites tree" - the same feature - and "favorite tools" - different feature.
Favorite tools was not in my Tools menu
Are you sure? When I used default settings, it was there.
FC should still have a way to hide it in the (View\Show menu) if you want to hide it.
I agree the favorite tools should have the option in the "View" menu, perhaps even if it's empty, the empty bar could be shown, it's easy add items there easily, right clicking, or just using drag&drop. There should be also the item for button and keyboard shortcut to show/hide favorite tools.

Workaround - remove the checkboxes for all toolbars in the "Define favorite toolbars" dialog to hide the favorite tools bar.

Moved to Feature Requests.
