Function Bar

Last updated:


Each feature of the Your SOFTWARE has its own function bar, which provides access to the specific tools used by that feature.

The Function Bar is located immediately above the work area, and immediately below the Tool Bar.

Common Function Buttons

There are a number of common buttons that are used across a number of Your SOFTWARE features.

A list of these tools are outlined in the Common Function Bar Tools topic.

The following are examples of Function Bars, note that each example has links to specific topics addressing the particular feature and its tools.
