The Menu bar

Menu Bar

The Menu bar and its menus is where you can access and perform most of the functions of the A4Desk Flash Photo Gallery Builder. Position the mouse over a menu item and its associated menu drops down revealing the options as shown below for the File menu.

File Menu

You can also invoke the menus using the Alt key of your keyboard plus the first letter of a menu. For example to invoke the File menu press Alt on your keyboard and holding it down press F. And subsequently after a menu is open you can access any of the functions or menu options of that menu by pressing the underlined letter of the menu item. For instance if the File menu is open you can invoke the New function by pressing N on your keyboard as N is the underlined letter of the function New in the menu.

Inside a menu you can select an option by either clicking it with the mouse or using speedkey combinations indicated beside a menu option. For instance to open a New project press the Control (Ctrl) key and holding it down press N on your keyboard. Note that to use a speedkey you need not open a menu.

The Toolbar

Several important functions of the menu bar are displayed using the same icons as in the menus conveniently below the menu bar on a Toolbar. To find out what these buttons stand for simply hold your mouse pointer on any of them and a tool tip will indicate their function.

The Toolbar is composed of individual smaller toolbars grouped according to similarity of functions. These toolbars can be detached and docked as shown below.
