Changing the order of objects
Items in a docking setting are shown in the order in which they are listed in the Toolbars and Windows list. For example, if the Standard toolbar is the first item listed, it is going to be the first item docked in the ArcMap window.
You can also arrange several toolbars to appear in the same line at the top of the ArcMap window by choosing the Dock Top option for the first item and Dock Right for the others beneath it. For example, in the illustration below, the Map Cache toolbar is under the Standard toolbar so it will be displayed on the same line. To do this, the Standard toolbar uses the Dock Top option, and the Map Cache toolbar uses the Dock Right option to indicate it should appear to the right of the Standard toolbar.
On the main menu, click Customize > Production Mapping > Toolbar Settings > Docking Manager.
The Docking Manager dialog box appears.
Choose a framework command in the Docking Settings list.
The objects included in the framework command appear in the Toolbars and Windows list.
- Choose an object in the Toolbars and Windows list.
Use the buttons in the Toolbars and Windows area and the docking options to change the position of the toolbar.
The following can be used to change the position of the toolbar:
Add To Toolbar Group. Indents a toolbar beneath another so it can appear in the same line. This tool cannot be used with windows. Instead, you must have the item listed immediately after the window with the Dock Right option.
Remove From Toolbar Group. Left aligns a toolbar so it appears on its own line or can be used as the start of a new line.
Move Up In The Docking Sequence. Moves the selected item up in the list so it is displayed before other items in the framework command.
Move Down In The Docking Sequence. Moves the selected item down in the list so it is displayed after other items in the framework command.
For example, if you want the Tools toolbar to appear on the same line as the Versioning toolbar, you would click the Move Up In The Docking Sequence button once, then the Add To Toolbar Group button .
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all the toolbars and windows you want to reorder.
You can view the updated setting by clicking Apply.
