How to Repeat a Recent Icon Menu Insertion


Every time you insert a symbol from an icon menu, Elecdes makes a copy of that entry in an icon menu of recently used symbols. The Recent Symbols Inserted function enables you to display this menu and choose a recently used symbol to insert.

The icon menu of recently inserted symbols is stored independently for each user in the Windows temporary files on the local computer.

Commonly inserted symbols will appear closer to the top-left of the icons than other less frequently inserted symbols.


  1. Select Recent Symbols Inserted from the Elecdes > Utility menu.

  2. Elecdes displays an icon menu of recently used symbols.

  3. The remainder of the procedure is the same as standard insertion of a symbol from an icon menu.

    For further procedure, refer to How to Insert Symbols.
