To add a command to a toolbar

   On the ribbon, choose Tools > Customize UI (in Manage).

   On the menu, choose Tools > Customize UI.

   Type cui and then press Enter.

   2   Click the Customize tab.

   3   In the Current Customization area, select either a workspace or a customization file (for example, ICAD), then expand Toolbars in the list.

   4   Expand a toolbar name to show the commands that display on each toolbar.

   5   From the Command List, drag a command to where you want it located in the Cur­rent Customization list.

   6   To further customize a toolbar, right-click an item located below where you want to add a new item, and choose one of the following:

   Insert Button Inserts a toolbar button that runs a command when clicked in the user interface. The toolbar button is inserted in the list above your selection.

   Insert Sub-Item Inserts a toolbar button if you right-clicked a toolbar name in the list. If you right-clicked an item in the list located on a toolbar, inserts a toolbar button nested in the list under your selection, and the selection becomes the parent command on a flyout.

Toolbar flyouts are a way to organize related tools and conserve space on toolbars. A flyout is indicated by a small triangle in the lower right corner of a tool. When you click a flyout tool, a set of additional tools displays. The flyout tool you select then becomes the default tool on the toolbar.

   Insert Spacer Inserts a line that appears vertically on the toolbar to separate groups of commands. The separator is inserted in the list above your selection.

   7   Click OK.

You can reset the user interface to be the same as when the program was first installed.
Use the Options command, click the Profiles tab, then click Reset.
