The Toolbar is where you’ll find quick shortcuts to important tools and actions you’ll use a lot in the Mac app.
You can customize the toolbar with different buttons to suit your needs. Simply Control-click on it and choose Customize Toolbar… or choose View > Customize Toolbar…. Here’s a rundown of the default toolbar:
- Canvas and Components View switch allows you to quickly switch between the Components View and the Canvas .
- Insert gives you quick access to the different layers you can add to the Canvas.
- Create Symbol converts a group or layer you’ve selected into a reusable Symbol. You’ll be able to choose a name and Layout options when you create a Symbol. Find out more about Symbols.
- Forward , Backward , Group and Ungroup help you organise your layers and move them within the Layer List.
- Edit and Tools give you quick access to common actions for editing layers.
- Union , Subtract , Intersect , and Difference give you quick access to the Mac app’s four boolean operations.
- View changes how your designs appear on the Canvas and what you’re focused on.
