vRigger features a Ribbon-style toolbar that is similar to the toolbar found in Microsoft OfficeÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â®. This type of toolbar groups common tasks, such as the force calculation tasks shown here, which makes them easier to locate.
Tabs organize commands by task.
Groups within each tab divide the tasks into subtasks.
Groups can contain buttons, checkboxes, drop-menus, and more.
Five tabs, File, Home, Gear, Forces, and View are available on the toolbar.
The File tab is displayed on the left side of the toolbar. This tab contains commands to open, save, close, and print the vRigger workspace. It also provides access to the vRigger Options .
Customize the toolbar
You can customize vRigger to suit your preferences.
The Quick Access Toolbar ("QAT") at the top of the vRigger window provides easy access to the most frequently used commands. You can right+click on commands in the toolbar to add them to the QAT.
A drop-down menu next to the QAT gives you access to more commands and customization options, including an option to Minimize the Ribbon which will enlarge the workspace. (You can also minimize the toolbar by double-clicking on any of the toolbar's tabs.)
Use the Style command to change the visual style between several different appearances.
