Working with the Property Bar and Toolbars

The property bar is located right underneath the menu bar. This bar can morph into something else, depending on what you are doing at the time. You might start out with the text property bar, but as soon as you create a table, it switches to the table property bar. When you create an outline, you get the outline property bar, and so on. It’s very cool. The buttons you need automatically appear, and you get your work done twice as fast because you aren’t searching through the menus for a command.

The toolbar is different from the property bar. It doesn’t change unless you tell it to. The toolbar you see in Figure 1.2 is called the WordPerfect 11 toolbar and has buttons for general editing tasks. There are 22 other toolbars to choose from, including WordPerfect 8, WordPerfect 9, WordPerfect 10, and Microsoft Word 97 toolbars. Other toolbars contain buttons for working with fonts, outlines, graphics, tables, macros, and so on.
