Managing Actions

With actionBarEZ you can move, copy, paste, and delete your actions (and edit their properties). All these operations can be performed for one action or several actions at the same time.

These actions are available from the Action menu or the contextual (right-click) menu.


Shortcut key: Alt+Enter

Lets you see or change the properties of one-or-more actions.
The property tabs are exactly the same as those found in Lotus Notes.

Select your action(s) with your mouse.
For multiple selection use:
  • Shift + click and drag for contiguous actions
  • Ctrl + click and drag for non contiguous actions

If you select more than one action, the title of the window indicates the number of actions selected and some specific properties cannot be changed: the fourth tab (formula) is not available.

When you make any modification, you must click OK to apply you change.
