Main Toolbox

Used to select general usage element selection, manipulation, and modification tools.

With the exception of Element Selection and Delete Element, the tools in the Main toolbox are also members of a "child" toolbox. When one of the other tools is pointed to and the Data button held down, a drop-down menu opens from which a tool in the child toolbox can be selected. The child toolbox can be "torn off" and floated by choosing Open as ToolBox from the drop-down menu.

When a tool is selected in a child toolbox (attached or floating), the tool automatically becomes the "representative" of the child toolbox in the Main toolbox.

All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.
