Dude, where is my simple button?

Written by Robin den Buurman on . Posted in Exact Synergy

In product update 244 we have improved the document editor. This included the change of the user interface and the support for multiple browsers such as Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari, and Mozilla Firefox.

A question that I have recently received many times is where did my simple (full screen mode) button go when I create new documents? Well the short answer is. It was relocated to the editor’s menu bar first  button from the left or press F12 on your keyboard.

Nice but when in full screen mode also the save button seems to have disappeared? Yes that has been done to even further enlarge the space the editor can use. You can easily save your document from full screen mode using the [ALT]-[S] shortcut on your keyboard. If you want to improve the editors size even further you can also collapse the left side bar in most style sheets. 

More information on the editors menu

The following table provides descriptions on the icons and drop-down options that are available in the document editor:

Feedback is highly appreciated!

    What happened to the Apple credo: Less is more? My personal opinion is that there are too many buttons.

    Hi Jeroen,
    The listed functions are devided into two menus, the simple one (default) and advanced one (not visible by default). So less is more unless you need more :)
