Standard Toolbar

The QlikView standard toolbar contains buttons for the most frequently needed functions. To toggle the standard toolbar on or off choose Standard Toolbar under Toolbars on the View menu. The figure above and the text below refer to the default contents of the standard toolbar.

New File Opens a new QlikView window and allows to create a new QlikView file. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+N.
Open File Allows the opening of a QlikView file or table file in a new QlikView window. Opening a table file automatically opens the file wizard. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+O.
Refresh This command is only available with documents opened on QlikView Server and when there is a newer version of the document available on the server. When invoking a refresh access is gained to the latest data, while maintaining the session including selections and layout state.
Save Saves the active document as a file. The default file format is set in User Preferences.
Print... Clicking the print tool immediately effects the printout of the selected sheet object according to default printer settings, bypassing the general print property page. The tool will be grayed if no printable object is selected. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+P.

After clicking the Print button you will be prompted for a file name for the PDF output file. This button is only available if a PDF printer is available on the system.

Undo Layout Change Undoes the latest layout change, including moving, sizing and removing of sheet objects as well as changes to sheet object properties. Removing sheets, editing the sheet properties or document properties can also be undone.
QlikView maintains a list of the latest layout changes. Each Undo Layout Change command makes it take one step backward in the list. Certain operations, e.g. Reload and Reduce Data will empty the Undo/Redo buffer. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Z.
