Quick Access Toolbar


Some, who are using the AutoCAD 2010 Ribbon, have found that there are certain tools they want to access frequently but have to constantly flip back to another tab to see them.   A good example of this would be the Layer Toolbar.  Most of us have grown used to looking in the upper left corner of our screen to see which layer is current.  The default Ribbon setup has the Layer Toolbar placed solely in the Home panel, making it easy to lose track of your layer settings.

The Quick Access Toolbar can assist in this predicament.  Frequently utilized tools can be placed in the Quick Access Toolbar, minimizing searches that would otherwise have to be done. 


To add the Layer Toolbar from the Ribbon to the Quick Access Toolbar, right click on the command to be added then select Add to Quick Access Toolbar.  If you add multiple commands, they can be grouped by right clicking on the Quick Access Toolbar and selecting Add Separator.  You can also relocate the quick Access Toolbar by selecting Show Quick Access Toolbar Below Ribbon.
