Tool Set Customization

Recommended Posts

How do I remove a built in VW tool from a Tool Set?  I'm having major issues with people using the "I-Beam" tool thinking they're using a Wide Flange.  An I-Beam is an antiquated structural member that isnt even manufactured anymore.  It has absolutely zero practiacal use unless youre a historian documenting structures... Why is this even in a Tool Set?   It has no use and I'm so so so tired of telling people not to use them and they still do.  I want to delete the tool.  How do I do it?

You can go to Tools > Workspace and make a duplicate of the delivered Workspace that

suits you best. Save it with a new name. Edit your custom Workspace to your liking.

Like deleting entries, rearranging them, create new Menus or Palettes and fill it with

Commands and Tools.


That is the common way to work with VW in a custom user interface.
