PSIcapture User Guide: Customizing Interface & Panes



The User Interface for PSIcapture is built upon a series of panes. Each module (i.e. Capture/Import, Classification, Quality Assurance, etc.) has its own panes, toolbars and options. This section covers the commonalities among these modules. Users can find more detailed information on the toolbars and panes specific to each module under the overview sections.

An added feature of each module having its own panes is that the user can adjust or move the panes within the window to suit specific user needs. A more detailed account of this feature can be found by in the Pane Docking & Pinning section below.

Ribbon Menu

The ribbon menu has its own settings like what to show or hide, setting up individual quick access settings, or hiding the menu. Each module has its own Home ribbon which is outlined in this section. The overall settings available for the ribbon menu are outlined below.

  • Quick Access Toolbar (QAT)

    • Off by default but can be enabled on User Settings.

    • Right click on ribbon command to add to QAT


    • Right click on command on QAT to remove it
    • QAT commands are stored separately per module.
  • Minimize or Auto Hide Ribbon - This option is stored per module so you can have it minimized in one module and open in another.



Pane Docking and Pinning


Pane Docking & Pinning refers to the ability to rearrange the module space to suit the user's needs. Instructions for moving panes around are detailed below.


The Navigator, File Browser, and Batch Viewer Panes can be docked to the workspace (default) or made into a standalone window, which can be resized and moved about independent of the PSIcapture workspace. To undock the pane, click the title bar and drag.

To re-dock a pane, click the title bar and drag to one of the arrows. The blue shaded area indicates where the pane will be docked. The different arrows allow the user to dock the pane to a different location of the work area.


  Docking Icon







  • Dock the pane to the top of the work area, below the toolbar
  • Dock the pane to the extreme right of the work area
  • Dock the pane to the extreme bottom of the work area
  • Dock the pane to the extreme left of the work area
  • Dock the pane below another pane already docked to the top
  • Dock the pane next to another pane already docked to the right
  • Dock the pane above another pane already docked to the bottom
  • Dock the pane next to another pane already docked to the left


  When dragged to this icon, any pane becomes a standalone window.



The docked panes can either be pinned to the workspace (default) or set to auto hide into the left margin. To enable or disable auto hide, click on the thumbtack icon in the upper right corner of the pane.
