Scaling down the main panel

Post by Atrio » Wed Feb 17, 2021 7:25 pm

Hi,

is there any way to scale down the main panel in the upper part of the screen so that the keys (and the panel itself) become as small as they are in the Editor? I would like to maximize the reading space.

I'd also like to know this, my one biggest gripe with PDF X-Change is how inefficient it is with vertical space.

"Reduce large icons in toolbars" can be enabled via Customize Toolbars > Options.

Most needed functions/icons can be put in the quick access toolbar, located in the title bar if you like.

Ribbons can be toggled on/off thanks to function key F8.

Hi Willy, can you please explain how I can put functions/icons in the quick access toolbar, or address me to a tutorial?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Atrio,

Someone more official can respond with a more in depth explanation, but the quick access toolbar is the lil guy im in the top right corner and you can customize it through customize toolbars and just dropping and dragging what you want there :)

Hello JarrahP,

Thanks for your help!

@Atrio, please do take a look at the links I shared, and namely this one:
https://www.tracker-software.com/knowle ... the-Editor

There are some short gifs illustrating how you can do it with a simple Drag and Drop.

Kind regards,
Stefan
