Library window toolbar

These are commands that are available when browsing an EndNote library. The icons represent the most commonly used features in this part of the program. Of course, all functions under these buttons can also be used via menus.
The icons are only active / available if the command is relevant. It is,  for instance, not possible to use the «Open Link» command if the selected reference has no link registered.
