Linked toolbar

Name
(No link)

Unlinks the child toolbar.

<Toolbar name>

The name of the child toolbar.

Float to top

Makes the last used button in the child toolbar to appear as the link button in the parent toolbar. This is useful if you want to change the toolbar button that appears in the parent toolbar as the link button or if you want the last button you used to appear as the link button.

If you normally use one button in a linked toolbar and rarely use the others, you probably want the one you use most to always appear on the link button. In this case, clear Float to Top.
