Move workflow configurations into the shortcut toolbar

It would be good to replicate some of the key workflow configuration settings as shortcut icons in the main shortcut toolbar.


For instance, I often use 'Disable all tools that write output' and need to toggle it on/off quickly when I'm testing a workflow. It takes too many clicks to deselect a tool, open workflow configuration, open the Runtime tab and select the checkbox. Many end-users I work with also don't even know the option is there because it is so well-hidden.


It would be much simpler and easier If I could toggle it straight from the shortcut bar. Having a keyboard shortcut to do it, like I do with ctrl-R (to run) would be even better.


Having shortcuts would also be good for:


  • Disable all browse tools
  • Show/Hide connection progress
  • Open the Events window
