Menus and Toolbars

Menus and toolbars are actually quite similar because they both let you issue commands.But where menus use words to describe commands,toolbars use icons-or pictures-to represent the program's functions.

You can also operate publisher using the keyboard.Shortcut keys are shown to the right of the commmand names.

ON the menus that drop down from the menu bar.

Access short menus.

Right-clicking any object in the publisher window ,invilves a shortcut menu containing commmands that are specific to that element.For example,if you right -click a picture frame,the shortcut menu lets you inserty an image file.

Right -clicking a text frame instead brings up commmands to change hyphenation options or run a spell check.

what is the meaning of the double arrow that appears below menu commmands?

The doublearrow that appears at the bottom of the menu is a function of publisher's intellimenus.Intellimenus are smart:they display the commmand you use frequently,and hide the commands.When fully expanded,an intellimenu always indicates infrequently used commands by displaying them against a lighter,depressed background.
