You can bring up the toolbar by either pressing the "Toolbar" button on the main control, or by pressing the toolbar hotkey. This hotkey also releases the mouse so you can work with any of EQ Pixie's windows. The default hotkey is "Pause" or "Pause / Break", which is usually located next to the "Scroll Lock" key. You can choose a different hotkey in the Options.
You can move the toolbar by clicking on the 4-arrow icon (looks like a plus sign) and dragging. You can also resize the toolbar by dragging it's ends.
You can customize the toolbar in various ways by right clicking on it and selecting options from the popup menu. Currently you can make it stay on top, be translucent, be vertical or horizontal, adjust it's size, and specify which buttons it shows.
You can keep the toolbar visible all the time (useful with EQ2) by right clicking on the toolbar and selecting "Stay On Top".
Making the toolbar translucent may reduce the frame rate of EQ2. If that is a problem then don't use the option. This doesn't seem to happen with EQ1.
EQ1's frame rate drops while the mouse is released from it. This is not an effect of EQ Pixie as it happens with any application.
Minimizing EQ1 or EQ2 will increase your computer's performance when you are working with something besides EQ. You can do this by pressing the "Windows" button on the toolbar. You can bring EQ back by clicking it on the Window's taskbar, or by clicking the "Play" button or one of the number buttons on the toolbar.
More help for the toolbar will be written shortly. For other help please see the Contents.
