For MacBook Pro laptops with the Touch Bar, Tap Forms offers quick access to multiple features via the Touch Bar shortcuts. Included by default on the Touch Bar is:

  • An add button to instantly begin creating a record
  • A view switcher for swapping between Single-Column, Multi-Column, Calendar, Map, and Photo Grid
  • A search button, which jumps to the search field for typing

After clicking into the Touch Bar preferences via View > “Customize Touch Bar…”, you’ll have the ability to change the look of the Touch Bar. Other than the three tools mentioned above, the only thing to add into the Touch Bar is additional space between the available options; when customizing the Touch Bar, you’ll mostly be removing or rearranging the buttons.

Touch Bar customization features two parts: the window on the display and the options on the Touch Bar. On the display, Tap Forms will display the available tools. To add one one of these to the Touch Bar, click on it and drag it down to the bottom of the screen. As you drag below the display, you’ll see the selected tool appear on the Touch Bar – position it in the appropriate location and release your click. Similarly, move your mouse to the Touch Bar to bring tools to the top display and remove them from the Touch Bar.

When in the editing view, the Touch Bar tools will enter a “wiggle” mode, where you can tap and drag the options to rearrange them.

Like in many other apps and websites, the Touch Bar will also adapt to the work you’re doing. These instances can include sharing or saving a document and changing certain colors within the interface.
