How to Configure the Command Bar

The Command Bar is a user-configurable button bar that runs across the bottom of a Smaart window. It can be hidden and restored by means of the triangular button centered in the border area just above it. The show/hide button remains visible in the window border when the bar is hidden and can be clicked again to restore it. You can also toggle the Command Bar by selecting “Command Bar” in the View menu or by pressing the [U] key on your keyboard.

Each version of the Command Bar consists of ten buttons, any of which can be assigned any one of a wide range of functions. In general, nearly anything you can do with a keyboard shortcut can also be done with a command bar button. Command Bar button functions are assigned in the Command Bar Configuration dialog, accessible by selecting "Command Bar Config" from the Config menu.

To assign a function to a Command Bar button:

    1. Select the tab for the Command Bar version that you want to edit.

        (Command Bar configurations for RT Mode and IR Mode are edited independently)

    2. Click on one of the selectors in the Command column on the right.

    3. Select the function that you want to assign from the list. 

        A default name for the function will be automatically suggested in the corresponding Name field

        on the left. You can click on this field to make it editable if you want to change the name.

    4. After editing a button name, press the [Enter] key to set the change. When you are finished

        configuring your selections, click "OK" to exit the dialog. Your new button names should

        immediately appear on the Command Bar.
