Single Line Icon Bar
The goal is to have only one Icon Bar on the screen, customers complain often about the waste of space if you have two icon bars with only a few icons inside.
In standard configuration one (or more) come from the Application Bar and one come from the Panel screen. Unfortunaly I need some shortcuts which you can easily bind to the Application Bar.
I have modified the Panel to remove that Bar. But you can not put all the Icons to the Application Bar (e.g. Navigation Tool) and if I do so with a trick it raise an error and don't work. Ok, I understand that this Tool needs connection to the screen.
If I try to remove the Application Bar and bring all Icons to the Panel screen, this works well. But I can not bind shortcuts to the Panel. So, as a trick, I put the shortcuts in my Functional structure near root. With every change of a display they are started in the Panel Screen Bar. They work there well but from time to time I get a script error (see Question: Event List Script Error). This is also not a smart solution.
Does anyone have a good solution to bring all the icons and shortcuts to one Bar?

There exist no outspoken support for what you are doing - so be careful.
Officially, there is only one set of layouts and panels that comes with full support - those found on the product DVD set and possibly something published on ABB Library. Adding a second or third monitor is one thing, but editing the XML panel layout code is another...
There are many of us waiting for a professional System 800xA workplace layout and panel editor.
I suggest that you contact your regional ABB sales representative and ask for this functionality.
