Chapter 1. The Basics > Options bar

Options bar

The options bar is used to choose settings for each tool (e.g., Opacity, Flow, blending Mode). Options on the bar change depending on which tool is currently chosen, and your choices will remain in effect until you change them. Like the palettes, the options bar can be dragged to a different part of your screen. Double-click the left edge of the options bar to collapse/expand it.

Palette well

On the right side of the options bar is an area called the palette well that you can dock (store) palettes in. To do this, drag the palette into the well or choose Dock to Palette Well from any palette menu.

If a tool is associated with a palette (e.g., the Brushes palette is used with the Pencil tool; the Character palette is used with the type tools), you can click the Toggle palette button to show or hide that palette when that tool is selected.
