The Navigation pane consists of three tabs: QuickBar, DataBar and FastLook. For each tab, you can customize the font and colors that are used. For FastLook, you can additionally change how symbols stored there are displayed in the list.

Each tab has its own properties dialog, but there is also a properties dialog for the whole Navigation pane. There, the dialogs of the QuickBar and FastLook tabs are shown in tree view. This makes it easier for you to do several changes at once.

You can also change the docking behavior of the complete navigation pane, move it on the screen and automatically hide the pane to only show it when it is needed.

To access the Navigation pane properties dialog

▪       On the Format menu, choose Navigation Pane.

▪       On the left side of the dialog, choose the tab that you want to customize.

▪       On the right side of the dialog, adapt the default settings to your needs.
