Did you know that CADopia 11 comes with a Tool Matrix feature ? You can open the Tool Matrix and create your own tool chest of frequently used toolbars, which can float or dock on the drawing screen.

    CADopia

To display the Tool Matrix, right click the menu bar or a docked toolbar and select Tool Matrix. Or, type toolmatrix at the command bar. When you open the Tool Matrix the first time, it is an empty panel.

    CADopia

You can drag toolbars onto the Tool Matrix.

To place a toolbar on the Tool Matrix, click the handle on the left of a toolbar and drag the toolbar onto the Tool Matrix. The picture below shows the Draw and Modify toolbars in the tool matrix.

To remove a toolbar from the Tool Matrix:

Click the title of the toolbar, and drag the toolbar onto the graphics area (to float it) or to a margin of the program's desktop (to dock it).

To rearrange toolbars on the Tool Matrix:

Click the toolbar title and drag the toolbar onto the Tool Matrix.

To collapse a toolbar on the Tool Matrix:

Click Collapse CADopia on the toolbar.

The icons of the corresponding toolbar are hidden. The toolbar is still part of the Tool Matrix as shown below.

The Tool Matrix minimizes to a two column panel. The toolbars are arranged as drop-down icon menus.

You can dock the Tool Matrix just like any other toolbar.

Right-click the menu bar or a docked toolbar and clear Tool Matrix to hide the Tool Matrix.
