"Recent" button

Post by Afterimage » Sat Dec 30, 2017 7:08 pm

Is there a way to add a "recent" button to the toolbar instead of clicking file|recent and scrolling to whatever files in the list?

Is it really that hard just to click the little arrow and scroll? :lol:
If I can read the manual, so can you.

There should be a small down arrow to the right of the Open tool button. Clicking that should list recently opened files. Several buttons have the down arrow (New, Open, Undo) and you can right-click on Effects buttons to access presets.

If I click 'file' a submenu drops down and 'recent' with an arrow beside it is one of the choices. I want to have an actual recent button on the toolbar because it would be much easier than fighting the mouse cursor to hover the right spot. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've clicked 'file' only to end up in the 'edit' because I didn't scroll perfectly.

Please take a closer look at the Open button in the Toolbar. You should see a little triangle ▼ to the right of the icon. Click that to display the recent file list.

Wowsers... Thank You. I think that would have been helpful to me from time to time, but I never knowed it!
