How to Move and Customize Your Toolbar (Macintosh)

The main toolbar is a strip of buttons that gives you easy access to frequently used Eudora commands.

Hold down the COMMAND key and click on the Toolbar

Customizing the Toolbar- Step 1

Hold down the Command key on your keyboard (the Apple key next to the space bar), then move your mouse cursor over the toolbar. Click with the Command key held down and Eudora will allow you to edit the toolbar.

If you move the cursor in the area between two buttons (as in the image above), click and it will allow you to add a new button. If you click on a button itself, it will allow you to edit that button.

Customizing the Toolbar- Step 2

The Toolbar Button Creation window will appear.

Choose any menu action (from File, Edit, Message, etc) or key combination. That function will become the toolbar button.

If you click Remove Button, it will remove the button. If you click Cancel, it will remove the edit.

Special: Settings: Toolbar

Toolbar Settings

To access Toolbar Settings, go to the Special menu and select Settings. Scroll until you find Toolbar.

  • Show Toolbar: If this is unchecked, the Toolbar will not appear.

  • Orientation

    • Horizontal toolbar: The toolbar appears at the top of the screen. This is the default setting.
    • Vertical toolbar: The toolbar appears on the left edge of the screen.

  • Button Type

    • Big icons with names: The icons are large and the name of the button is displayed.
    • Big icons only: The icons are large but the name of the button is not shown. This is the default setting.
    • Small icons & names: The icons are large and the name of the button is displayed.
    • Small icons only: The icons are small but the name of the button is not shown.
    • Names only: No icons are shown - only the name of the button is displayed.

  • Map function keys to button: If this is checked, the F1-F12 function keys will be mapped to the toolbar buttons.

  • Show function key labels: If this is checked and you have the button type set to "Big icons with Names", the F1-F12 labels will appear under the buttons.
