How to customize companion abilities?

I've noticed that my companion gets new abilities as I level - but I can't seem to figure out how to move them around.

They seemed "fixed" on the mini bar and if you expand them.

It seems I can turm them on or off, but not move them?

The reason I'm asking is because in the mini bar for the companion you get 4 abilities.

Do they use all of their abilities or just the ones hotkeyed on their mini bar?

Can I switch these 4 out?

If I expand the mini bar for my companion it takes over my whole bottom row - for my main chracter hot keys.

Thanks.

I like your suggestion...I want to use both rows of my hotbar for my character's skills, and still expand the crew member's, so maybe they should go UP? Or in a double row like mine 4-wide 2-high?

It is not possible to move any of the abilities on the companion hotbar. Your companion will use all of the abilities that you have turned on in the hotbar.

You can add them to any of the four available ability bars, you just need to go into the preferences and set it to left right center or bottom center.

I have them on left, this way I can see and trigger them all manually while using the two center bars for my own.

Try dragging them out of the companion's skill panel (accessed by a tab on your own skill panel).
