    Thanks. Its very useful, adding new quality to work flow on surface book, Microsoft should learn from this thread and add fully featured program that work same way as this tool bar in their surface book 2 and pro 5, that will be good for theirs machines... Ok, I have question, and maybe suggestion for future update, I wish to have option to edit existing toolbar each button size, position etc. as at this moment even I clone one, still don't have option to edit buttons, which mean I have need to start new all over again when I need change in example if want joint button nr 1 and 2 into one or change positioning of them etc. I mean I wish to have edit option, as you always have to know exact how many buttons, what format and position you need when you starting create new bar... Or maybe Im missing this option? Also can you spread to 30x 50x50pix option in each column (now Im able to do 20 each column)? I wish to create tool bar that is dock to left, and have one column on left side from up to down my monitor that has 3000x2000 resolution and 30 in each column will be just right to match size of default size of tool bar in illustrator... in this way, would be able to turn off original tool bar, and based on its icons recreate my own bar with added buttons from short cuts... that will be great, any advices? I will update with pictures what I mean and what is my idea of this tool bar so you have visualisation as it may be hard to understand ;)
    Another question/suggestion, would be great after assign tool bar to work with specific program, that when program is minimalize (or close) tool bar will fallow program, and minimise or close same time...

    Thanks for the suggestions. Your two main suggestions have actually been made several times and if I ever find time to update Toolbar Creator, they sure will be included in there.

    For your second suggestion of showing/hiding the toolbar depending on the active program, that is currently not possible. Although if you use the toolbar with only one program, it wouldn't be much trouble to write up something for it. Let me know if that might be of interest (but again, would really mostly work if you use the toolbar with only one program).

    For your first suggestion, indeed modifying an existing toolbar can be difficult. There is no way to do it automatically through the Options, but there is a manual way to do it. Learning how to do it might be a bit difficult at first, but once you know how to do it I think you would find it pretty straightforward to come up with your 30-button toolbar. If you are interested, look at section 4 of the pdf file containing "Advanced Instructions" that is available on the first post of this thread. Let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

    Thanks,
    Its just suggestions, I get how programs work and its pretty great. I wish to have option for edit existing tool bar or at least copy existing setting to new tool bar but with edit window pop up. That's not a big deal. I start working on integral illustrator tool bar, but instead of remaking whole I decide I will just add extra buttons under exiting tool bar, Ive done undo and redo for now, look like it was originally there what I like :) will fill it with all short cuts and share later. Can I set up on one button command to switch to another available toolbar (or even specified)? Thanks!

    Your toolbar looks great and integrates very seamlessly with the real toolbar! Great job!

    Unfortunately, in the current version of Toolbar Creator the only way to switch to another toolbar is through the main menu or the tray icon.

    Your suggestion about editing an existing toolbar has been noted down. In the meantime, let me know if you need any help to do it manually as described in the pdf file.
