Part 2: The User Interface > The Tools Palette

3. The Tools Palette

InDesign’s toolbox borrows heavily from other Adobe applications, most notably Adobe Illustrator. Several tools are also identical to those in QuarkXPress.

InDesign’s Tools palette can be positioned in the traditional two columns, or in a single vertical column (like XPress’s). You can also position it horizontally as a single row (like Microsoft Word’s; see Figure 3-1). To change the palette layout, click the maximize window button at the top of the palette (Windows) or double-click the bar at the top of the palette (Macintosh). Or, you can use the General section of InDesign’s Preferences dialog box to set the display of the tools palette. If you accidentally close the Tools palette, you can easily re-open the palette by selecting Tools from the Window menu.
