Creating Groups (Fast Dial 1.x)

In Fast Dial Version 1.x the word Group is used.

In Fast Dial Version 2.x the word Folder is used


In Fast Dial Version 1.x it is possible to make a group from any empty cell that you have on any Fast Dial Page.

To make a Group it is first necessary to right click on the cell you wish to use to form a group:
Click on Properties

You will then see the Cell Properties Menu.

If you click on the small box marked Group and you see a tick appear this means you are about to create a Group.
You can also name the Group by filling in the Title field.
Click OK

You now have now created your Group.

Click on the group cell that you have just created and you will find yourself within your Group, with the tell-tale back arrow cell in the Top left corner.
The Title written at the base of the Back Arrow Cell will be the name of the Group.
This name will also appear on the Tab.

Should you wish at any time to exit the Group that you are in, go to the top left corner and click on that cell with the Arrow in it and you will find yourself back on the previous page, where your Group Cell is located.

The only page that will not have that cell with a back facing arrow in it will be your First Root Folder Page.


The small Properties window allows you to set many other different parameters for your new Group.

These options will be dealt with in detail in Cell Properties.


It is useful to know how to move a cell from one Group to another.

Adding a cell to a group

Here we have a choice of three groups and one free cell.
Let us add this cell to Group 2

The cell will disappear into the Group of your choice
Click on the Group Cell and you will find the Cell that you have just added.


Moving a cell out of a Group

If you wish to move a cell "backwards" out of it's Group to the previous Page then all you need do is to drag your cell to the top left cell, that is the one with the arrow on,

and drop it.

It will disappear from view.
But if you click on the arrow:

you will discover that your cell is now on the previous page.


These two methods of moving cells within groups that have been described above can of course also be used for moving cells which are designated as Group cells. So Groups can be moved around within other Groups.

This is very useful if you decide to re-shuffle your overall Fast Dial layout.
