Review answers

1You can select commands from the View menu to zoom in or out of a document, or fit it to your screen; you can also use the Zoom tool in the toolbox, and click or drag over a document to enlarge or reduce the view. In addition, you can use keyboard shortcuts to magnify or reduce the display of artwork. You can also use the Navigator palette to scroll artwork or change its magnification without using the document window.
2To select a tool, you can either click the tool in the toolbox or press the tool’s keyboard shortcut. For example, you can press V to choose the Selection tool from the keyboard. Selected tools remain active until you click a different tool.
3You can click a palette’s tab or choose Window > Palette Name to make the palette appear. You can drag a palette’s tab to separate the palette from its group and create a new group, or drag the palette into another group. You can drag a palette group’s title bar to move the entire group. Double-click a palette’s tab to cycle through a palette’s various sizes. You can also press Shift+Tab to hide or display all palettes.
