Menu Bar

The menu bar is located directly under the main window’s title bar. The title of each menu indicates the purpose of the commands on the menu. Each menu uses standard Microsoft Windows conventions.

NoteFile functions and related commands are available from the Quick Access toolbar and Application menu, which are separate from the menu bar.


When you click a menu name, a number of commands are listed below it.

As an alternative to using your mouse (or other pointing device), each menu name includes an underlined character. Pressing that character key while holding down the Alt key opens the menu, unless that particular key combination is assigned to a keyboard shortcut. Some commands and subheadings in the open menu have an underlined character as well. While the menu is open, pressing that character key invokes the command. While navigating menus with the keyboard, you can also use the arrow keys to move the highlighting and the Enter key to activate a command or open a submenu.

An ellipsis (…) after a command name indicates that invoking the command opens a dialog.

A right-pointing triangle after a command name indicates that a submenu will appear.

If a command has a keyboard shortcut, the menu displays it to the right of the command name.

If a menu command is an on/off toggle, a check mark indicates its status: If a check mark is present, the command is active.
