Copying Custom Toolbars Between Profiles

  • Copying Custom Toolbars Between Profiles

    Posted by Vince on July 2, 2024 at 5:06 am

    I’ve just started playing with scripts for automating a few operations and am putting them in a new toolbar called “Scripts”.

    My problem is that I want to use this toolbar in virtually all of my profiles but can’t see a way of just copying the toolbar along with its contents and then pasting into a new profile.

    Is this possible?

    If you copy a profile to create the new one, does the toolbar not stay?

      I’m trying to copy the toolbar to custom profile that I’ve already set up.

        that I don’t think you can do.

          Shame! Copy and paste it is then.

    Could you put the script tools into a Tool Chest and then make that Tool Chest “Visible In All Profiles”?

      You beat me to it @David Cutler

      If you go to modify the toolset, you should be able to check the box to make visible in all profiles. Fingers crossed!

        @David Cutler and @troy-degroot I’m actually looking at the toolbars not toolsets.

          Understood @Vince – I might not have worded my suggestion well – could the script tools be added to a tool chest instead of a tool bar?

            Do a search on your computer for .btx

            This is the file format for toolbars. You should be able to load it into other profiles if you can find it.

              I think these are toolchests instead of toolbars

    I would maybe start with the original profile as a base and import the other items you need, export as the new. Depending on how many toolbars you have it could save you a bit.
