How to remove buttons from the toolbar, and then add them back.

Post by DWD1961 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 5:56 pm

Seriously, I went to Tools>Options>toolbars but I can''t seem to get rid of the default toolbar bar across the top, remove it's buttons, then add back specific buttons.

I'm creating a family album and need specifically these buttons only

1. jpg lossless crop
2. copy to folder

It's a huge number of files and those are the only two buttons I need.

TIA

Toolbar Customization: Can't remove or add buttons to toolbar

Post by DWD1961 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 6:03 pm

I have tried to remove buttons from the toolbar and then only add back the ones I want,but I cannot find a way to do that.

Options>Toolbars

I can't seem to remove any buttons from the toolbar, or get rid of the default toolbar.

I only want two buttons showing:

1. jog lossless crop
2. copy file to folder

What am I doing wrong?

XnView MP, the latest software, has a highly customisable toolbar... :D

I can't easily check how customisable XnView Classic is as I'm in Linux, but it is unlikely to be nearly as customisable.
