Toolbar configuration anomaly

#1
11.29 allows command buttons (e.g., Exit, Check for Updates, etc) to be dropped onto the Tabbed Toolbar using Customize... These buttons are added following the regular buttons in the given tab. They work fine in the current TCMD session, however they are not retained after exit and restart of TCMD (even if Save to .INI is issued---not that I expected this to change anything). When right clicked, an empty Tool Bar Button dialogue comes up. Should I then fill in the dialogue and click OK, TCMD crashes (surprise, surprise!) with:
Code:
TCMD  11.00.29

On the other hand, I discovered in v10---and this also works in v11---that Customize... allows buttons to be added to the menubar. This is a great feature as it saves the need to create a separate toolbar that takes up space. Should you decide to do something about the anomaly in the OP, please, please don't "fix" away this capability of being able to add buttons to the menubar.

The menu bar and the explorer toolbar both support the "Customize" menu
option (see the help). The tabbed toolbar does not (and it is not listed in
the Customize menu). I presume you must be trying to drag & drop to the
tabbed toolbar; I will turn off drag & drop support for the tabbed toolbar
to prevent excessively adventurous users from breaking it.

Correct. I won't miss being able to add command buttons to the tabbed toolbar. I just happend to try it and discovered the problems. Your proposed remedy makes perfect sense to me.

Adding on to the toolbar configuration thread...

I put TCMD v11 on a production system and then uninstalled v10. Due to the mostly wasted space of the tab area on my single set of toolbar buttons, I turned it off. Unlike the explorer toolbar or the command input, folder, or list views, it refuses to stay turned off. Every time I restart TCMD, the toolbar comes back. Do I have to delete all of the button definitions to keep it from coming back?

The toolbar is going to be restored from the values saved in TCMD.INI at
startup. If you don't want it, or only want it sometimes, remove it from
TCMD.INI. You can always load it with "TCTOOLBAR /R ..." later.
