Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing shelves with the Shelf Editor, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…The shelves in Maya are completely customizable.…We created some buttons on the shelves, but let's also look at how we can…adjust the look of the buttons and move them around and rename them and so on.…For one thing, we can create a shelf aside from the custom…shelf and then we can populate it with whatever buttons we want.…That's done through the shelf editor.…And to get to there, we will go to this little down arrow here…on the left of the shelf and go to the shelf editor.…And you can see these are all the shelves.…
And within each shelf, are some buttons.…And we can do things here such as change the name…of the button and the look of the button, and so on.…One of the main things we would want to…do is probably display the full name of the button.…That's done through the options here.…We can choose to display text, or we can choose to display text and icons.…The text that shows up here is the same as the text that we see over here.…If we wanted to rename it we would just, change this up here.…So change that to Freeze for example.…
