This feature was added in version 19.05.31.
Lazy Nezumi Pro has a fully customizable preset toolbar that will help you quickly select your favorite presets. You can toggle its visibility via the File/Preset Toolbar menu.
This page explains its settings, and how to configure it to your liking.
Feel free to design your own custom icons if you're so inclined. We'll happily host them here with proper credit, if you're interested in sharing them!
Read the XML Configuration section below to learn how to easily switch from one set to another!
The toolbar has 4 layouts you can choose from by clicking on the little button in the corner of the window:
Lazy Nezumi Pro comes with a stock toolbar ready to go with many useful presets. The configuration for this toolbar is stored in the toolbar.xml file in the installation folder, and is copied to your user data folder the first time you run it (like the presets themselves). If you'd like to change your toolbar configuration, you can use the Edit toolbar.xml menu from the Settings/Toolbar Settings.
Here's a very simple example toolbar.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <toolbar> <iconfolder>icons/aaron</iconfolder> <overlayfolder>icons/overlays</overlayfolder> <tools> <tool> <preset>smoothing - pulled string</preset> <icon>smoothing_pulled-string.png</icon> </tool> <separator/> <tool> <preset>ruler - radial triangle</preset> <icon>ruler_radial-lines.png</icon> <overlay>triangle.png</overlay> </tool> <tools/> <toolbar/>
This XML will setup the toolbar with two presets and a separator line between them. The second preset will have the triangle.png overlay applied to it. Overlays can be used if you want to reuse the same base image for several presets, but still want to differentiate them easily. The stock toolbar.xml makes great use of this by having overlays for many presets that share a ruler but use different scripts.
The iconfolder and overlayfolder elements specify the subfolder (from the installation folder) where icons and overlays should be loaded from. This allows you to easily switch icon sets without having to rewrite the entire XML (as long as the different icon sets use the same filenames). You can try this out by changing your iconfolder value to icons/dave to see a different set of icons after reloading the toolbar.
To put presets in a group, simply place the <tool> elements within a <group> element. This group will then open automatically when you hover over it (or when right-clicking). The stock toolbar.xml makes use of this by placing all related presets in groups.
Some of the toolbar's settings can be changed via the Settings/Toolbar Settings menu. Here's a description of what they do.
If this option is checked, groups will automatically open when your cursor hovers over them. Otherwise, you must right-click to open them.
If this option is checked, a group will close when you select a preset from its list. Otherwise, the group will close automatically after a short time-out when you leave its window.
If this option is checked, the toolbar window will stick to the sides of your screen.
If this option is checked, the toolbar window will automatically hide when you switch to a non LNP-active window.
This opens the toolbar.xml file for editing. A text editor must be associated with the xml file type for this to work correctly.
After editing the toolbar.xml file, use this menu to reload it and update its window.
