Common Software Options
Just as software programs standardize popular features, so, too, are options
becoming standard. Popular options reoccur in many software programs.
This segment discusses common software options without reference to
individual programs. However, we do refer to some word processing
software options in these discussions.
Toolbars are a collection of options displayed on the top or sides of monitor
screens. The SYSOP may elect to display or not to display toolbars by
clicking the pull-down menu under VIEW and placing or removing a check
mark to the left of Toolbar.
Toolbars consist of common options such as
Font Face, Font Size, Justification, Line Spacing, Table Create, Column
Define, Zoom, Font Attributes, Bold, Italicize, Underline, and Symbology.
Software may also have program specific options on a separate toolbar that
enable the SYSOP to maximize using the software.
Figure 8-15 shows the location of toolbars.
