Numbers offers intuitive organization features, allowing users to focus more on analysis and presentation. In Numbers '09 Essential Training, David Rivers explores the important features of this spreadsheet application and introduces the new tools for formula development and charting. He walks through the new functionality of charts, tables, and templates, and shows how to make spreadsheets effective and eye-catching. Exercise files accompany the course.
With Numbers '09, you have full control over the look and feel of your user interface. Let's explore some customization options now, using a brand new spreadsheet created from the Template Chooser. We'll start with the View menu. Click View to display a number of elements, which can be shown or hidden from view. For example, if you rarely use the Toolbar, you might click Hide Toolbar. This creates a little extra space for our canvas. To bring back the Toolbar, click View. This time choose Show Toolbar.
You can also show or hide certain elements from the Toolbar itself. Click the View button in the left corner to display those options. For example we can hide the Format bar from here. We can also customize the Toolbar itself. To do this, right-click with the two button mouse or Ctrl-click with the single button mouse anywhere on the Toolbar itself. Here, you'll see options for ways to display the buttons on the Toolbar. We can remove items by right- clicking an item on the Toolbar and choosing Remove Item, or click Customize Toolbar to make multiple customizations to your Toolbar.
For example, if you rarely use Shapes, you might move the Shapes button off the Toolbar, click and drag it down. When you release, a puff of smoke indicates you have removed it from the Toolbar. Now you have got more space to add the buttons you'd like to use more often. For example, if you print on a regular basis, you might want to add the Print button. In this case, drag the Print button to the Toolbar where you want to place it. When the Plus sign appears, release to add the button. You can also reset the Toolbar back to its default settings at any time.
Move to the bottom of the screen, drag the default set to the top of your screen, when the Plus sign appears, release, and the Toolbar is set back to its default settings. When you are done customizing your Toolbar, click the Done button in the bottom right corner. So it's good to know you have full control over the look and feel of your user interface here in Numbers '09.
