Select any tool in the Smart Toolbox and its palette, as well as related tools, automatically opens and snaps to the right of the Toolbox. The tool palette remains in that position until another tool is selected.
To Display the Toolbox:
By default, the Smart Toolbox is active when you launch Canvas X Draw for the first time.
If you’ll often use a specific tool, or related tools found on the same palette, you can also lock the palette so it stays “snapped” to the Toolbox.
You can relocate palettes to another part of the layout area. To do so, place the pointer on the palette title bar and Shift-drag the palette from the Toolbox.
Click the Lock icon.
In the Smart Toolbox, tools are represented by icons in two columns. The tools that aren’t displayed are available on tool palettes that snap to the Toolbox when opened.
Click the tool. The selected tool is shaded, like a recessed button.
This diagram identifies the default tool palettes in the Toolbox. Click on a tool icon and its respective palette opens. (See Viewing the Smart Toolbox.)
