Creating your own toolbar
Can I create my own toolbar in Inventor?
Solution: Yes, utilize Inventors customization interface tool to create your own personalised toolbar.
To create your toolbar select Tools>Customize, and then click the Toolbars tab, click new and enter the toolbar name in the dialog box, click ok or press enter to accept. Your tool bar will then appear near the top left of the screen, to select the features you want to use click the commands tab. In the categories list click the command category you want, position your new toolbar near the customization dialog box, drag and drop the features required onto the new tool bar. You can also copy existing toolbars and add and remove features from them to suit your own needs, an example of this would be to copy and modify the sketch and part features panel and attach them to your top toolbar to increase the view of your model browser.
