<para>In the same way that menus can be moved around, as was explained
<xref linkend="menu-bars">, toolbars can be moved around the Gnumeric
window by dragging the little tag on the leftmost portion of the
toolbar.
</para>
<para>
If the Gnumeric window is too small to fit all of the toolbar buttons,
gnumeric may display a little right pointing black arrow to indicate
that there are more options. If the user clicks on this arrow, a window
will open with the remaining buttons.
</para>
<para>
Certain toolbar options, such as the zoom box, are combinations of a
button or text entry area and a downward pointing arrow. If the user
clicks on the arrow, a list of avaliable options appears. It is also
posible to "tear off" these options into a separate window in the same
way as was explained for menus in <xref linkend="Menus-General">.
</para>
<para>
The toolbars can be configured by a context-menu which opens when the
user clicks with a particular mouse button on an empty part of the
toolbars or on the toolbar handle. This menu is explained in
<xref linkend="menu-context-toolbars">.
