How do you combine several commands into 1 custom dropdown button like this.
I can't see your image, but what you would need to do is record a macro to lump multiple commands together.
It looks like these flyout tool buttons are predefined by SolidWorks and you cannot add to or create your own. send in an enhancement request.
@Scott I added an attachment so you could see what i was talking about.
@Troy Really? You can't make customized buttons......WTF Solidworks.....
I still can't open the file. There has been issues publicly where not just me, but others
that can't see or open certain images for what ever reason. I can't even see Tony's.
I can guess based on the responses thus far that you are maybe trying to add custom buttons
created using the macro command? I know these buttons can be added to conventional toolbars
with created graphics.
Maybe if you inbed a jpg file into this thread instead of a png that might be visible.
Sorry for the inconvienance.
There are several in the custom commands section.
Not exactly the same thing, but I assume you know about the "S" key shortcut and how it can be modified.
Didn't know about the shorcut bar "S" key. How do you modify it?
Edit: Nevermind....drag and drop....
The "S" key is a good workaround but sheesh you think you could add custom buttons to the command manager toolbar....I mean come on..
I believe it was stated at a seminar that I was at that you can take one of the existing command-manager toolbars that you don't use and delete/add buttons from it - then you have your own bar at the expense of a toolbar that you aren't using.
You can do that. I have done it. If you RC on the command manager,
then in the new tab RC again you will see this command list pop up.
Select rename then you have your own tab to drag commands in on.
RMB on command mgr, select customize, then RMB on the the end tab and add new tab.
OK I found out that they are called "flyout toolbars" under customize----commands----flyout toolbars. I can add them to a new tab or any tab i want to but, I cant modify what's inside them. I don't want 20 flyout toolbars with alot of stuff i don't use that often, I just want a few toolbars with the mixed commands I use most. Maybe the "S" key is the best option for me.
Also see these items in the forum that relate to this:
1) A blog post I wrote that goes into more detail on the flyout toolbars: Technical Tip: Toolbar Flyouts
2) A forum thread about the same general question: Can you add Buttons to flyout toolbars in 2008?
The Shortcut Bar ("S" key) which I also gave details of in this blog post (Technical Tip: The Shortcut Bar ("S" Key)) may solve your problem, but if you do want customized flyouts on the CommandManager or on a toolbar, the best you can currently do is take one or more of the toolbars that has a "Toolbar associated flyouts" (as documented in the first blog post above), put the flyouts where you want them in the CommandManager, menu bar or toolbar, and then customize what buttons are on the toolbars that the flyouts are associated to (by making the associated toolbars visible and customizing them and then hiding them).
