The Toolbars and Menus section of the Personal Options tab allows you to customize the visibility of the toolbars and buttons of MZ-Tools:


You can customize:

  • Whether the Main toolbar is visible or not, and the visible buttons when it is visible.
  • Whether the Other Utilities toolbar is visible or not, and the visible buttons when it is visible.
  • The visible buttons on some context menus.


  • You cannot customize the visibility of the MZ-Tools menu (on the main menu) or the visible menu entries on that main menu.
  • You cannot customize the order of the buttons on the toolbars or context menus, only if the menu entries are visible or not.
  • If you are using VBA or VB6 you can use the built-in capabilities of those IDEs to customize toolbars: right-clicking on any toolbar and clicking the Customize... button on the context menu that appears, the Customize dialog is shown but also the IDE enters in "customization" mode. In that mode, you can drag a button from any toolbar and drop it on any other toolbar (clicking the Ctrl key at the same time the button is copied rather than moved). So, you can leverage that capability to put buttons of the MZ-Tools toolbars on other toolbars that don't belong to MZ-Tools, such as the Standard or the Edit toolbars, or on a new toolbar that you can create with the New... button of that Customize dialog. Once you have put some MZ-Tools buttons on a different toolbar, you close the Customize dialog and you need to restart the IDE (otherwise the moved/copied MZ-Tools buttons on other toolbar do nothing when clicked).
