Use the custom toolbar
Applies to: All products
Answer: You can speed up data entry and access to the features that you use most by using the custom toolbar. Almost every program feature can be assigned to a custom toolbar button. (snip)
I only use a mouse and it finally dawned on me that I was required to click an inordinate number of times to select a tag. Finally found out that I could after selecting "add a tag", by typing in the first couple of characters of the tag name, the tag selection window would go right to the tag or very close to it. This saved a lot of scrolling.
Finally, I was convinced to create a custom toolbar. Looking at my tag use, discovered that 16 tags covered the majority of my tag use, and that add father.mother.son.brother.daughter ... were also high on my use list. I then looked at the TMG provided tool bars and to my surprise only six of them did I really use.
I set up a tool bar which includes my 16 tags, the eight add father/... and the six TMG operations. I docked the toolbar on the screen left, removed all the other toolbars and have lost only a small portion of my screen for my other open windows.
After doing this, what I found surprised me. Setting up for data entry has improved my performance by at least 25% and at time as much as 50%. One click and I can enter my data. Its the only way to go.
