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:
To Dock the Toolbox:
Disable the Smart Toolbox option and then click the docking button or drag the Toolbox by its title bar to the Docking bar.
By default, the Smart Toolbox is active when you launch Canvas X Draw for the first time. You cannot dock the individual tool palettes when this option is enabled.
If the Smart Toolbox is disabled, you click an icon to open a tool palette and then click again on the icon for the tool you want to select.
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.
When palettes are locked, you can relocate them 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.
Also, if you Ctrl-drag the palette, you can move a group of locked palettes or a single locked palette away 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.)
