MagicDraw 19.0 LTR Documentation


Toolbars help to speed up your work when performing commonly used tasks. Your modeling tool has two types of toolbars:

  • Main toolbars - contain commands for basic project related tasks and are located at the top of the modeling tool window, right under the main menu.
  • Diagram toolbars - contain commands for working with diagram symbols and are located at the top of the diagram pane.


To show or hide different toolbars


  • In the main menu, click View, select either Main Toolbars or Diagram Toolbars, and in the showed menu select/clear the check boxes of the toolbars that you want to show/hide.
  • Right-click the desired toolbar area and in the shortcut menu select/clear the check boxes of the toolbars that you want to show/hide.

Customizing toolbars

You can customize existing toolbars by adding or removing buttons, and also create new custom toolbars.


To add a new toolbar


  1. Do one of the following:
    • In the main menu, select View > Main Toolbars/Diagram Toolbars > Customize.
    • Right-click the toolbar area, and in the shortcut menu select Customize.
  2. In the Customize Toolbars dialog, select the desired toolbar group and click the Add > New Toolbar.
  3. Enter the name of the new toolbar and click OK


After completing the above steps, a new toolbar is created in the selected toolbar group, and you can choose to show/hide it in the shortcut menu of the respective toolbar area. Note that the newly created toolbar does not have any buttons, so you need to add them after creating it.
