An attention prompt asks for verification before removing the group. If you click Yes, Origin removes the custom button group from the Groups list box. If any buttons from this (removed) group are placed on toolbars, those buttons will no longer function after you remove the group.

Notes: You cannot remove built-in button groups.

Once you have added a new button group, you can modify the bitmap for the group:

  1. Select the desired group from the Groups list box.
  2. Type the new path and file name in the Bitmap text box, or click the Browse button to locate the new bitmap file.

Notes: You can also modify the bitmap for the User Defined button group.
