Shrink and Freeze new UI

Post by unzufrieden » Sat Dec 16, 2017 6:52 am

Hello,
I use Tracker pdf-products for manymany years and never had a problem that required me to seek help. Until now...
The new version Nr. 7 of the Viewer has a terrible UI, I think. Up until now, I had the toolbar customized in a way, that all tools necessary for me where visible but the total space of toolbars was still minimal. In the new version its about twice as big. I can take away unnecessary commands but that doesnt reduce overall size. Also the option "Reduce large icons in toolbar" doesnt help.
Second problem: When I click in the document, the toolbars disappear! Since the toolbars now take away so much space, this is somehow helpful, because they take away so much viewing space. But I want all the tools I need, to be visible at all time.
So is there a trick to shrink the size of the toolbars and make them stay where they are?
Thank you

Hi ,

Thanks for the post - I suspect that you may be better switching back to the classic UI:

Cheers,

Looks like you have used the Ribbon auto-hiding feature. When its minimized, to disable it, just click on down-arrow on the right of ribbon pane:

- it will show Ribbon-tools again. Then click again on the same button to make Ribbon pane permanently visible:

Thank you very much! Everything back to how it should be, for me.
At first I wasn't happy with the new version but since I can switch back to the old layout...I'm happy :)
