R2012b ToolStrip

Message: 1 of 7

I am frustrated by the R2012b ToolStrip. I use a lot of shortcut scripts. In the previous version, they were always available. With the Editor open, I could use a shortcut to insert material into the code. After running the code, I would use shortcuts to reconfigure, close or hide figures. Now I have to first go to the shortcut section of the ToolStrip, select the shortcut and then return.

Is there any way to either keep more than one part of the Toolstrip open or to put icons from one part in another part of the strip?

I see that the 2013a Beta is out. Perhaps there are some changes there in this regard.

You can add shortcuts to the quick access toolbar. This toolbar is the row
of icons next to the search field (assuming you're using the default
settings), and it is visible even when you navigate between different tabs.

To add a shortcut to the toolbar, right-click in the toolbar, and then
select "Customize...". This opens the toolbar preferences. In the "Controls"
field of the preferences dialog, expand the "Shortcuts" folder and select
your shortcuts.

Hope this helps,

Leslie

Next, TMW should work on solution(s) to toolbar icon order randomization
-- I found your method shortly after R2012b release, but later discovered
that icons get more-or-less get randomly arranged over time, under
conditions that still are not clear. ...and before you mention it, yes, I
know about drag&drop, I know about remove & re-add, I use Win7 x64.

That sounds like it may be a bug. I recommend that you contact Technical
Support and work with them to determine the cause of this problem so that if
it is a bug we can fix it (and possibly provide a workaround.)

('sounds'? ...in a text-only medium? hmm... 2013 is off to a weird start.)

That may be so. I figured I'd wait, look for something a bit more
substantive and submit all of it at one time.

The quick access toolbar is unavailable in the Web browser, in the Help browser and in the figure windows. Figure windows have an ordinary menu bar, which is inconsistent but better than nothing. But the browser windows are bro/ken; there is no Window menu and no way to get at it, not even using the Alt key.

Moreover, it is impossible to use the tool strip using the keyboard. You
may show the Window list pressing [Alt] [8] but the windows do not have
keyboard shortcuts assigned and the cursors do not work (they are sent to
the editor window instead).
On the other hand, the cursors do work when you open the Window list using a
mouse.
