Organization of menus . . .

Recommended Posts

I've noticed in YouTube videos on Vectorworks that often the various individual menus are consolidated into arrays of symbols along one or more edges of the screen--this rather than a lot of individual palettes.


Are there ways to accomplish this in VW 2018? I'm still a novice and can't find the instructions.

I am fairly sure I know what you're asking, but if this doesn't explain it clearly enough let me know:

To make them appear as icons only and not show their text labels, click the small arrow at the bottom of the palette and then select View Tools As and/or View Tool Sets As and set them to Icons Only.

To show more than one tool palette at once, click and drag the name/icon for the toolset in the tool sets palette and pull it off to the side, it will then create a palette of just the tools in that toolset separately that you can then dock along your screen if desired.
