ggb 6 classic: hide icons in graphics view

Lenore shared this question 8 months ago

How do I hide the 1 icon at the top and the cluster of icons at the bottom of the graphics view? They are in the way and ruin graphs I'm trying to draw for tests. I've attached the screenshot I would like to use, but the icons hide the x-axis label. I can move the axes - and further compress the vertical axis - to put the axis above the icons, but I still have the top right icon in the view. (Back to ggb 5 for now.)

I'm afraid you cannot. They are part of the GUI

Ok. That means I definitely hope you keep updating ggb 5 because it makes ggb 6 unsuitable for generating figures.

this graph was got with GG6

/ZQPBu5otqXYAAAAASUVORK5CYII=

the label is done typing $xLabel\;you\;want\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;$ as label of xaxis


the zone of capture was selected dragging a rectangle while pressing the right buttom of mouse


you can also to select the rectangle for generating figures creating two points named Export_1 and Export_2 when you generate the figure it gets the rectangle formed with the points in diagonal

Hello

yes, it is a problem (with GeoGebra5, the problem is the same with fullscreen icon in the right bottom, when file is on internet)

"They are part of the GUI" : but we can imagine create a SideBar (like in GeoGebra5) showing or hiding those 4 icons...

Mathmagic, I know how to label axes (as my example shows; you can see that even the x-axis is labeled but the label is obscured by the icons). Your solution doesn't really work because it requires cropping off the arrow at the end of the x-axis.

jumera, yes a SideBar or ToolBar solution would be ideal. I don't really understand why the zoom icons have to be there when we have mouse actions always active for them nor why the home button has to be there since its accessible from another menu already. The full-screen icon probably ought to be in the View menu rather than a mandatory part of the graph window. Fullscreen isn't even a sensible option on tablets and at least on a Mac computer the interface standards specify a different route to full-screen (green button in top left corner of window or keyboard command specified in system-wide preferences). Since the whole process of clicking differs dramatically between computers and tablets - as well as differing among computers, it seems peculiar to insist on a visual similarity across interfaces that belies the action differences and also violates the interface conventions on the differing devices.
