For the most frequently used functions, up to five favorite buttons can be defined in the function bar. These definitions may differ from user to user. At the right edge of the function bar you can switch between form view and list view, if the mask has a separate list view.

Main functions

At the left edge of the function bar is the button for all main functions that are available within the called mask. Clicking on the icon opens a pop-up menu in which all available functions can be called up.

Favorites buttons

On each mask, up to five favorite buttons can be defined per user, whereby it is possible to define different favorite buttons for each user.

Under the menu item [Settings > Appearance > Buttons] all root favorites can be defined. All favorite buttons set here are automatically applied to the user settings when a new user is created. To define a button as a favorite button, click on the desired button in the desired mask and select a function to be executed with the button.
