Altering the Configuration Interface
The Manager configuration settings interface can be customized in a number of ways. These changes are remembered the next time Manager is started.
Resizing the Manager Window
When the Manager window is not maximized or minimized, it size can be adjusted.
Place the cursor over the edge of the current window.
When the cursor changes to a double-headed arrow, click and hold the cursor.
Drag the edge to the required position and then release the cursor.
Moving the Border Between the Panes
The border between the visible panes can be adjusted. Note that this is a proportional rather than exact position. If the whole window size is altered, the border position may also move.
Place the cursor over the border between two panes.
When the cursor changes to a double headed arrow with a bar through it, click and hold the cursor.
Drag the border to the required position and release the cursor.

The different toolbars can be hidden if not required.
Select View and then Toolbars. Those toolbars currently shown are indicated by a tick mark.

The position of the Manager toolbars can be moved. Note that when moving a toolbar, the other toolbars and panes may adjust their size or position to ensure that all the toolbar icons remain visible.
Place the cursor over the end of the toolbar.
When the cursor changes to a four-way arrow, click and hold the cursor.
Move the toolbar to the required position and release the cursor.
