The Classic toolbar is a set of icons shown in Microsoft Word when Wordfast Classic is installed and activated. By clicking the icons, the user can activate some of the most important Classic functions.
If you hover over an icon in the toolbar, a caption appears. The caption shows the name of the icon and the keyboard shortcut you can press instead of the clicking icon.
