The Tools panel, also known as the Toolbox, contains tools that you can use to draw, paint, select, and modify artwork. The Tools panel is divided into 4 main sections: (1) the first section at the top contains selection and transform tools; (2) the next section contains tools for drawing, painting, and adding text; (3) the next selection contains tools for changing, modifying, drawing and painting; and (4) the last section contains additional tool options for zooming and panning in the program window, changing stroke and fill colors, and selecting other options. You can show or hide the Tools panel as necessary and customize the Tools panel to display the tools you use most often. You can now expand and collapse the Tools panel to switch between one and two columns of tools. When you customize the Tools panel, you can display more than one tool in a location. The top tool in the group appears with an arrow in the lower right corner of its icon. When you click and hold the pointer on the top tool, the other tools in the group appear in a popup menu. When you select a tool from the group, it appears in the Tools panel as the top tool.

For Your Information: Creating Tools

Flash lets you design your own Tools, using the JSFL language. In addition you can download tools created by other authors at the Adobe Exchange at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm. Although Adobe has yet to properly document the JSFL language, point your browser to http://www.dynamicflash.co.uk/jsfl/ for a look at how JSFL is implemented in the Flash environment.
