Reset Toolbar

Resetting your toolbar will generate a new bookmarklet that you can install on computers to use with your OWH account. This is useful if you've installed your toolbar on computers you no longer have control over and you wish to disable those toolbars. After resetting your toolbar, you, or someone else will receive a message telling you you will need to re-install the toolbar to make it work again.

Organising Ideas

The Orbital toolbar has room for 10 ideas at a time. To make more room, you can click the close button that appears over ideas on the toolbar when you hover the mouse over them in the workspace. Clicking this button does not delete the idea, it just removes it from the toolbar.

Ideas that are no longer on the toolbar are still available as a webpage if they have been shared and can be found via the Orbital Warehouse workspace search bar.
