Shortcut menus and contextual command buttons
Unlike many Ribbon tools, the Mini Toolbar tools do not produce Live Previews of formatting and other effects. If you
need to see a Live Preview, use the Ribbon instead.
Shortcut menus and contextual command buttons
If navigating through an Offi ce application’s Ribbon tabs still seems like a lot of work to
you, shortcut menus , also called contextual or pop-up menus, remain. To display a shortcut
menu, just select text, cells, or an object such as a picture in the fi le, and right-click or
press the menu key on your keyboard. As shown in Figure 2.13, the shortcut menu offers
the commands you’re most likely to use next for the selected item.
FIGURE 2.13
When you right-click a selection, a context-sensitive shortcut menu appears, along with the
Mini Toolbar.
Offi ce 2013 adds a new form of contextual tools to speed your work with some document
objects, particularly on a touch-enabled system. When you select some types of objects,
such as a chart, one or more contextual buttons will appear to the right of the object.
Clicking some of these buttons opens a fl yout gallery of formatting options for the
selection, as shown in the example in Figure 2.14. Clicking other buttons opens a fl yout list of
choices that you can click to toggle on and off, as shown in Figure 2.15. Simply click the
desired choice in either type of fl yout, or deselect the object to hide the buttons.
