macOS High Sierra

Use the Panel Editor

If you use Switch Control or the Accessibility Keyboard, you can use the Panel Editor to add custom panels to the Switch Control or Accessibility Keyboard panel collection, to streamline common tasks and actions for different apps on your Mac. You can also use the panels on another Mac, or share them with other Switch Control or Accessibility Keyboard users.

A portion of a panel collection window showing a list of keyboard panels on the left and, on the right, buttons and groups contained in a panel.

A panel can contain buttons and groups of buttons. You can set options that control the appearance of the items, the actions the items perform, and, in some cases, how you move from one item to another. The options you set vary depending on whether the panel is for use with Switch Control or the Accessibility Keyboard. For more information about creating panels, see Set options in the Panel Editor.

Note: When you edit a panel in the Switch Control or Accessibility Keyboard panel collection, be sure to save your changes so they’re available in Switch Control or the Accessibility Keyboard.
