SPECIAL NOTES

For larger monitors the expanding space in the toolbar will be located before the 4 icons left of the navigation and to the right of the navigation.

If the end user is using a smaller monitor the text will disappear to only show icons. If the client has chosen text only then smaller monitors will have a problem so please design for monitors displaying 1024x768 pixels and larger.

When creating icons, please keep in mind spacing within the 26x26 square. If the designer has placed the icon towards one side, it will throw off the spacing on the toolbar.
