[Closed] Creating our own toolbars?
Last question, I promise! I've had these stored up for a few years and tried searching in last week since I dl new GIMP but didn't bother to look before as I never got GIMP to work for me. Now it is and I'm really excited to have a good portable graphics solution on my USB stick.

Just wondering if it were possible to create my own toolbars in GIMP; I haven't been able to figure out so far if this is possible. I'd like to re-create the toolbar layouts that I have in other graphics programs just so that the placement of different tools is the same. It would mean being able to assign various items from any of the pulldowns to the newly created toolbars in any order that I need. This is one of the most important things I'll need in GIMP and hoping it can be done. After using any program for a while, I rarely stick with the pulldowns (or even ribbons in the stupid new MS apps) and create customizations so that I instead have one-button access to what I use most frequently. I then carry these customizations around on a stick.

Can this be done in GIMP? I've either used the wrong search terms while googling over last few days or it can't be done; so hoping it's just that I haven't found how to do this.

Thanks! Smile

Not as far as I know. In Gimp advanced users define/use keyboard shortcuts.

Thanks! I thought so, but it was worth a try. Yes, I did find defining the keyboard shortcuts and that's good that GIMP has that but it's just a small way to customize, not as robust or as good a solution to having customized toolbars. <sigh> Maybe one day ...

Thanks.
