Version 19.2 Deluxe: Adding "3D Boolean Operations" Icon to Toolbar
Read 2770 times
* March 17, 2013, 04:34:26 PM
Hello All.

I'm trying to get the 3D Boolean Operations icon added to the Drawing Tools toolbar.  I went to Options|Customize|Commands; scrolled down to Modify, and clicked; dragged 3D Boolean Operations to the location I wanted in the Drawing Tools toolbar (the "classic/standard" location); and closed out of Options|Customize.

What I ended up with was a button that had the text "3DBooleanOperations▼"; when I click on that, I get the normal 3D Boolean Operations options (Add, Subtract, Intersect, Slice).

I want my 3D Boolean Operations button to be the same icon that I am used to seeing over the years, not this text button (which takes up a lot of space).  When I right-click the button, I get the option to choose an icon, but none of them are a 3D Boolean Operations icon.

Any idea how to get the button to be a classic/standard icon?

Thanks, Alvin

Use "New Popup Toolbar" from the "New Popup" category (bottom of the Categories list), then drag in the individual Boolean commands. The "3DBooleanOperations    ▶" command that you dragged over is really just for Menus.

Okay.  Thank you John.  -Alvin

(I recognize that I really need to study up on my Menus/Toolbars/Palettes manipulaion; I'm pretty clueless in that area, and just rely on clicking and dragging until I like what I see--  have for a dozen years [poor method])

In 19.2 Deluxe:  Is there an icon (Button Image) that I can use that is the "default" or "common" Button Image for the 3D Boolean Operations Popup Toolbar?

When I go to "Change Button Image", there are a lot of cutesy choices (below), but not any that I can recognize as reflecting 3D Boolean Operations.

And:  How do we get the individual 3D Boolean Operations within that Popup Toolbar?

Thanks, Alvin

I guess what I am trying to accomplish isn't to get a Popup Toolbar with 3D Boolean Operations.  I think what I am trying to accomplish is:  To get all the 3D Boolean Operations in a Fly-Out within the Drawing Tools Toolbar--  as it is in the "installation-provided" configuration-file 1024x768del_pre19.  (1024x768del_pre19 screen-capture below)

I found my answer.  It was previously answered by John R in another Topic (here) [link style edited per John R's future-Post instruction].

I followed his directions step-by-step, carefully, and achieved what I was after; the issue I was having was:  I wasn't seeing (noticing) the little blank window that came up when I hovered my individual commands over the new Popup Toolbar I dragged into my Drawings Toolbar.

Thanks John!

Another topic:  How do you, John, create links in this forum that are "within" a single-word (such as: above, I would have liked the link to your previous Post to be simply "within" the word "here"

Thanks for the help John.  I found my answer to my original question(s) by doing a subject Search in these Forums for "Flyouts", and eventually read your Post.

See "URL" at the bottom of "Alphabetical list of all bulletin board codes" in the Forum Help or the picture below. You need to add an equal sign.
