Tool Visibility

Drawing / analysis tool visibility and display priority can be specified using the following options.

Show All Tools / Hide All Tools

To quickly show or hide all drawing / analysis tools in the current view, select the Tools checkbox in the Sidebar Plot Options.

Show / Hide Individual Tool Types

To show or hide individual drawing tool types in the current view (e.g., all text boxes), expand the Tools list in the Sidebar Plot Options (select the " +" beside the Tools checkbox), and select the desired check boxes (e.g., Text, Polygon, etc).

Show In Current View / All Views

When tools are initially added, by default they are displayed on all applicable views if multiple plot views are open. If you want a Drawing Tool displayed ONLY in the current view:

  • Right-click on the tool and select Current View Only from the popup menu, OR
  • Left-click on the tool and select Show In > Current View from the Sidebar tool properties, OR
  • When you initially add a tool, you can select Add To Current View Only from the Tools menu.

To re-display a tool in all views, click on a tool and turn off the Current View Only option.

Send to Back / Bring to Front

If drawing tools overlap, and you wish to display a tool "behind" or "in front of" other tools, right-click on the tool and select Send to Back or Bring to Front from the popup menu.

Tool Opacity

For Ellipse, Rectangle and Polygon tools, the opacity of the fill colour can be specified in the Tool Properties. This allows you to define the transparency of the object.

NOTE: The visibility status of drawing tools is saved when you save the file, so you should keep this in mind if you have hidden tools (i.e., hidden tools will not be visible when you re-open the file).
