Main Toolbar

Main Menu: View > Main Toolbar

By default the Main Toolbar is aligned below the menu bar, with its buttons in an horizontal row, but it can dragged and placed on the left or right sides or floating around.

The different buttons on the toolbar are not always active, some of them are only available when an image is active or under some circumstances. When a command is disabled, its button is grayed-out.
