About the Pages toolbar

 

 

The H2OS Pages Toolbar is a miniature "ribbon-like" window containing icons for the tab pages that you wish to have quick access to during your H2OS sessions.  During H2OS operation when the operator wishes to view a certain page, he or she can simply click the pages icon in the toolbar and the page will come to the front.

 

The Pages Toolbar was added to H2OS to address a limitation of the tab page system: because pages are grouped into "pagesets" a desired page may not be in the current pageset, which (before the Pages Toolbar) necessitates changing pagesets and then finding the page in the set.  That's much more tedious then clicking a single icon to bring the desired page to the top. This feature effectively negates the negative aspect of the tabbed pages organization methodology. With it we're encouraged to take further advantage of the building block design it made possible, that lets us add features incrementally via new tab pages (and commands, menu items) without an increase in difficulty of learning and using the product.
