Customize Your Command Manager Icons in SolidWorks

Sometimes it’s the little things that can make your day. Thanks to a co-worker, I recently discovered that you can customize the look of the icons in your Command Manager ribbons. So I thought I’d document it for the world to enjoy.

You may have gone to Tools > Customize to bring up the Customize interface, where you can customize your Toolbars, Commands, Menus, and Keyboard & Mouse Gesture shortcuts. But did you know that while this dialog is open you can right-click on a Command Manager ribbon and modify the appearance of individual icons? You can show/hide text, position the text below or to the side of an icon and begin or delete a group. (those vertical bars between groups of icons)

Look out sliced bread here I come.
