The Ribbon

Display and Organize the Ribbon

The ribbon is displayed automatically when you create or open a file, providing a compact palette of all commands necessary to create your model.

The horizontal ribbon is displayed across the top of the application window. The ribbon minimize button minimizes the ribbon. The minimize button is located to the right of the ribbon tabs. A temporary ribbon pane is displayed across the top of the application window when a command is active. Use the temporary pane to input command options, range limits, and other settings.

Ribbon Tabs and Panels

The ribbon is composed of a series of panels, which are organized into tabs labeled by task.

Some ribbon panels display a drop-down arrow.The arrow indicates there are additional commands related to that panel. Click the drop-down arrow to access the additional commands on the access table. To display a hidden panel, right-click anywhere inside the ribbon, and click the name of the panel.

To display or hide a panel, right-click anywhere inside the ribbon, and click or clear the name of a panel.

Floating Panels

If you pull a panel off a ribbon tab and into the drawing area or onto another monitor, that panel floats where you placed it. The floating panel remains open until you return it to the ribbon, even if you switch ribbon tabs.

Expanded Panels

An arrow at the bottom of a panel title indicates that you can expand the panel to display additional commands. By default, an expanded panel closes automatically when you click another panel. To keep a panel expanded, click the push pin icon in the bottom-left corner of the expanded panel.

Glyphs and Manipulators

As you use Inventor Fusion, you specify modes of operation, range limits, and other options. Since the Inventor Fusion user interface does not employ dialog boxes, there are other access modes to set these options:

■ The ribbon

■ Glyphs

■ Manipulators

The Ribbon on page 4 is discussed in another section.

Glyphs

As you use commands in Inventor Fusion, symbols or glyphs, often appear next to the cursor. Glyphs indicate that you can select a mode of operation, or that certain commands are available for use.

Click and hold a glyph to display the options for the active command. Drag the cursor to the appropriate option and release to select it. If you pause the cursor over a glyph, a commandtip displays more information about the glyph.
