    Wow, your Tecra has evolved into something impressive!

    I unfortunately haven;t tried to keep up with Windows Touch and Pen input api since they kept on changing it about every 2-3 months during the Windows 8-10 early days. So I won't be of much help with that and would unfortunately not have much time right now to dedicate to learning about it. The only way I know to enable/disable the touch input is to toggle the touch input device in Device Manager, but that's probably not what you want since it would take a couple of seconds to turn back on once you stop using your keyboard. The button on your Canvas is probably a much better alternative.

    Let me know what you think!

    Hi there, I just found this tool after searching if there is any program like this existing.
    I'm super excited about this!! Thx so much!

    Question: I cannot find out how to re-arrange the buttons of my toolbar, or add new ones to it?
    there surely must be a way to do it?

    The creation of the toolbar is one of the highlights of this forum, -basically 95% created by one contributor who doesn't visit very often these days, (Long live lblb!), so I don't know if he's around taking questions.

    I use, every day, a highly simplified early version of the toolbar, and I hard-coded the various buttons into place myself, so I'm not really familiar with the finalized official version or how to customize it. However, I did give it a run through back when it was officially released and can attest to the fact that it works, and that it allows almost any imaginable variation of on-screen control you care to come up with, and that it was overall an impressive bit of coding. I found it was a little confusing and that it took some fiddling, (exactly because it is so flexible), but that it can definitely be put into service once you figure it out. So I'd encourage you to keep pecking away at it and to read over the post history to get some clues.

    Maybe some other user around here can offer some advice?

    @ponc
    I'm glad you like it!
    Yes you can rearrange toolbars rather easily. But I never had the time to develop an interface for it so you have to do it manually by editing the text file associated with your toolbar. The instructions to do this are in the pdf file posted separately in the first post of this thread. Once you understand how to do it, it's quite easy. Let me know if you need any help!

    Long live @thatcomicsguy! Long live Stardrop!

    thx!
    wouldn't it somehow be possible to kinda just re-use that interface thats already there when you create a new toolbar and arrange the buttons?
    just take that, add a "edit" button to the "new/clone/delete toolbar tab"...
    I don't know crap about coding, so maybe it's not just as easy as copy/paste that interface, but it just feels like missing an essential function to be completely feature complete.

    anyway, still the most awesome tool i found since a long time!

    thx a ton!

    Hi everybody,
    I still love using the toolbar creator software on my HP Zbook Studio X360 G5. It is the only sw that I can use 2 touchkey panels at the same time. In this youtube video I demonstrate the use of the toolbar creator software on editing photos with Adobe Lightroom Classic (I hope you understand german, subtitles and a translation is in work). Feel free to leave a comment on Youtube.

    Hi @Naiplak,

    I'm glad you find it useful! And that others find your template useful. It's a hell of a template, and it's clear you've put a lot of work into it.

    It's okay if you want to include Toolbar Creator in the bundle as long as you make it very clear (very clear!) that they are paying for your template and not for Toolbar Creator. Also please specify that Toolbar Creator will always be free, and is available in this thread.

    Nice work!

    That's great, many thanks for your answer! of course I will make a note that you are the copyright holder of this software, and that it is Free and will always be. I will also put a note and a link to this Toolbar creator threat where it is also available.

    One question :
    I have seen this possibility to launch 2 Toolbar Creator Software at the same time with two Toolbars on two different touch monitors. Now I dream of 2 x 280 touch actions for CUBASE.
    The big problem is that I have been using all possible keyboard shorcuts available.
    Do you have an idea how to unlock this limitation?
