WME Toolbox: Configuration Panel

The configuration panel (CP) provides a number of options to customize an editor's experience with Toolbox. By changing the toolbar and adjusting other settings, users can make Toolbox better suit their needs.

Many options are limited by editor level or role, and not every editor will have access to all features. Any function that has a level or role check should show [AM/CM/L5], [CM/L5], etc. next to the label.
