All toolbars can be moved and docked to a more convenient location (left, right or bottom sides of the application window) or on the desktop (outside the main window) by drag-and-drop, using their left side handle. The toolbars are automatically enabled/disabled depending on the currently active window: for example if the current window is a table, the Table toolbar will be enabled and all the other toolbars will be automatically disabled. The same approach is used for showing/hiding the toolbars: if there are no more visible tables in the workspace, the Table toolbar will be automatically hidden and will be shown again when the users adds a new table into the project. A toolbar can be manually shown/hidden by the user, at any time, by right-clicking on the main window menu area and checking/unchecking the corresponding box in the pop-up menu. The File Toolbar The File Toolbar allows to access commands mainly from the &file-menu-lnk;. Refer to this section for a more complete description of these commands.
