Finding Your Tools

Fireworks MX has both added new tools and reorganized the Tools panel. Tools are grouped according to what they are used for—Select, Bitmap, Vector, Web, Colors, and View. Clicking a tool icon selects that tool. Related tools can be found by clicking the dark gray triangle underneath a tool icon. If you get confused, hold your mouse over a tool icon for a tooltip that names the tool and shows you the keyboard shortcut.

If you are an experienced graphic designer, this list should lead you right to the tools you need to get started working on your own. If you are a new user, some of these terms and tools might seem strange and useless. Don’t despair! You will learn to use all of them in due time. For now, it’s adequate to acquaint yourself with the names of the tools and be able to find them on the Tools panel.
