The Toolbars

The panel title bar at the top of each table panel is showing the table name. Below it the table toolbars are located, which allow access to all table functionality.

Note that all table functions can be accessed through the top text-based toolbar. Frequently used functions are also accessible through the icon-based toolbars below.

Note further that any of the toolbars can be moved around and (un)docked by click-and-drag on its corresponding ToolbarMove icon. All toolbars can also be modified by either right-clicking anywhere on any of the toolbars or by clicking on one of the ToolbarMod icons.

Below is a screen capture of the table toolbars. For information on menu items and icons, see the list underneath.
