Insert and delete toolbar buttons are dim

A frequent complaint on the newsgroups is that Insert or Delete buttons on a customized toolbar are always dimmed or disabled.

The problem is that there are two sets of Insert/Delete buttons that have the same icons. The set that works can be placed on the toobar using the Insert category of the Customize Toolbars/Commands dialog, and the command names are "Rows" and "Columns":

The buttons that don't work on a toolbar are those from the Edit category. These buttons are associated with the List Manager and have the word "Insert" prepended to the command names.

You can send feedback to MacBU to tell them that the situation is dumb and should be changed.
