Button copying from one button bar manager to another

I've got a lot of buttons in my default button bar manager, but I will like to split them into different button bar managers without having to create them individually to the new button bar. This means, I will like to move buttons from one bar manager to another.

I've created new button bars but can't find a way to move the buttons from default button bar to another.

Is there a way to do this?

Hi Niyi,

It would not be easy. Instead of using the managers, you would copy the button(s) you wish to move, then in the dropdown, change it so the target button bar is displayed and paste the button(s) there.

What might be easier for you is to move/reorder these using the Command Manager.

Changes in SecureCRT 8.7 (Beta 1) -- November 20, 2019

New features:

  • Windows: Added support for a Command Manager, which allows commands to be saved and organized within folders. Commands that can be saved include: sending strings, executing menu functions, running scripts, and running local applications. Also, button bars, including the buttons on the button bar, can be copied to the Command Manager and vice versa.

Have you experimented with Command Manager at all?
