Primary toolbars These commands mirror the commands found in standard menu bars, so they should be used only for primary toolbars.
Surprisingly, this model breaks down with simple programs.
For programs with only a few commands, having both a menu bar and a toolbar doesn't make sense because the menu bar ends up being a redundant, inefficient version of the toolbar.
I have all my Illustrator and Photoshop toolbars scattered throughout my desktop, and I simply want all of my menus, toolbars, and files to be within one window.
This is often super annoying because the toolbars don't pop up when my files are open depending on what desktop I am on.
If you have a menu bar in Auto CAD, type in MENUBAR and set it to 1.
On the Tools menu there is Toolbars, with which you can turn them on and off.For example, the Organize category is used instead of Edit because it contains commands that aren't related to editing.To maintain consistency between menu bars and toolbars, use the standard menu category names if doing so wouldn't be misleading.And because you can't assume that users will display a hidden menu bar to perform a single command, hiding a menu bar should be treated the same as removing it completely when making design decisions.(If you hide the menu bar by default, don't assume that users will think of displaying the menu bar to find a command or even figure out how to display it.) Designing a toolbar to work without a menu bar often involves some compromises. If hiding the menu bar results in an inefficient toolbar, don't hide the menu bar!Note that the command for displaying and hiding the menu bar is in the View menu.
