Chapter 3. Graphics > Tools and Options

Tools and Options

The Flash drawing toolbar is what you use to create graphic elements within Flash (bitmaps and graphics from other programs are imported). It consists of two areas: the toolbar buttons and their options (Figure 3.1). When you click a tool, it becomes active, displaying a set of options you can use to adjust its settings: Select the Eraser tool, for example, and only those options that apply to it will appear in the Options section of the toolbar. This type of context-sensitive interface makes numerous settings readily accessible without having to access the menu bar—a clutter-free and time-saving feature that surprisingly few other programs incorporate.

Figure 3.1. Many tools have options that appear at the bottom of the toolbar when you click a tool's button.
