The Toolbar section is rather flexible. It contains 6 default blocks of controls: "undo", "colors", "decoration", "align", "format", "help". You can change the toolbar structure and add more blocks, or change the order of the blocks.
It is also possible to customize the toolbar by adding your own controls and updating the controls' configuration.
The editing line can be used for two purposes:
- to edit the content of the selected cell
- to control changes made in the currently edited cell
You can switch the editing line off, if necessary via the corresponding configuration option.
Grid represents a table with columns defined by letters and rows defined by numbers. Thus, a cell of the grid is defined by the column's letter and the row's number, e.g. B2.
The Context menu section includes 4 items Lock, Clear, Columns, Rows, and Sort with sub-items.
The structure of Context menu is customizable as well. You can add custom controls, update the controls' configuration and remove unnecessary controls.
The Menu section contains several blocks that combine most frequently used options from the Toolbar and Context Menu to provide quick and handy access to them.
By default the Menu section is hidden, but you can switch it on via the related configuration option.
