Lesson 1. FreeHand Basics > Exploring the FreeHand Tools Panel

Exploring the FreeHand Tools Panel

FreeHand has a variety of tools you can choose by clicking the tool on the Tools panel or by using the shortcut key shown in the following figure. If a tool has a small black triangle in the bottom right corner, it is part of a group of tools; hold down the mouse button on the tool to access the pop-up tool group.

For example, hold down the mouse button on the Rectangle tool to see the other tool (the Polygon tool) in this group. If the Tools panel is not open, choose Window > Tools. The shortcut key for the Rectangle tool is R; you can press this key to select that tool. When you roll over each tool on the Tools panel, tool tips display the tool name and the shortcut key.
