Selecting your tool

A small black triangle indicates a button has a ‘fly-out’ toolbar attached to it. These ‘fly-outs’ are shown above, to the right of their ‘parent’ button.

To activate these ‘fly-out’ toolbars in either PC or Mac, place your cursor over the ‘parent’ button. Click and hold down the (left) mouse button, the ‘fly-out’ will then appear.

To select a ‘fly-out’ tool, keep your mouse button pressed and move the cursor over the desired tool’s icon. The tool’s button will now appear pressed ‘in’, indicating that it s now the selected tool for that ‘set’ of tools.

Release the mouse button. The ‘fly-out’ disappears and the main toolbox shows the icon for whichever tool you selected from the ‘fly-out’.
