The Quick Access Toolbar at the top of CRD is a quick way to access features instead of navigating through the Ribbon.
By default, the Quick Access Toolbar has eight options listed:
CRD Icon: Clicking this button will allow you to maximize, minimize, restore, or close the CRD window.
New Folder: Use this button to create a new schedule folder.
Note: To learn more about folders, click here.
Smart Folder: To create a new smart folder, click the Smart Folder icon (folder with 3 blue cubes in front).
Note: To learn more about Smart Folders, click here.
Options: Click this button to edit the configuration options for CRD.
Note: For more information about the various configuration options, click here.
System Monitor: Use this button to access the System Monitor.
Note: For more information regarding the System Monitor, click here.
Paste Item: Use this button to paste a CRD item (such as a schedule) after it has been copied. To copy and paste items, right click on the desired object. Then, select Copy. Go to the desired schedule location (such as the Annual folder) and place the object there using the Paste button.
Note: The paste button will be grayed out until something has been copied and is able to be pasted.
About CRD: Clicking this button will allow you to review the specific information about your CRD system. This includes your build and license information.
Below is a list of additional information that can be found on the About screen:
- The customer number that is used to identify your company in our systems
- The name of the company CRD is licensed to
- The product you are currently using (CRD)
- The edition of that product that you currently have a license for
- The daily outputs you are allowed to have with that license
- Your license key
- The maximum daily outputs (or peak usage) you have had in the last rolling 365 days
Note: If your license key has changed due to an annual maintenance renewal, you can click the pen and notepad button to the left of the license key. This will allow you to enter the new license key information. Be sure to enter it EXACTLY as it appears on the documentation provided by ChristianSteven. Once entered, click the green checkmark. You should receive a message stating the license key has been updated. This DOES NOT apply if you are activating CRD for the first time or are entering a new license key as the result of an edition upgrade. In these instances, you must Activate CRD in order for the new license information to update.
Help Button: Clicking this button will open the my.christiansteven.com Help Center.

From this menu, you will see several options. You can:
