Tools Editing Overview

Drawing / Analysis tools which have been added to a view can be formatted, moved, re-sized, edited, deleted, copied, hidden or displayed using the following options:

These options are available in the Sidebar and/or the following mouse-click actions.


In the Sidebar Plot Options, tool visibility can be chosen at any time using the Tools checkbox (to turn all tools on or off) or sub-checkboxes (to turn individual tool types on or off).

Tool properties can be configured in the Sidebar when you click the mouse on an individual tool.


If you click the left mouse button on a Tool, this will "select" the tool, and you will see the "control points" highlighted on the tool. While in this mode you can edit as follows:

  • Tool Properties – the tool properties (e.g. colour, line width, line styles) can be customized in the Sidebar
  • Re-size – you can click and drag the control points to re-size the Tool (if applicable)
  • Move – if you hover the mouse over any part of the Tool, but NOT on a control point, you will see the four-way arrow cursor, allowing you to click and drag the entire Tool to a new location
  • Delete – you can delete the selected tool by pressing Delete on the keyboard


If you right-click the mouse on a Drawing Tool, you will see a popup menu with applicable options for the tool.

Standard options for most tools include:

  • Copy Copy Icon
  • Delete Delete Icon
  • Send to Front Send to front icon
  • Send to Back send to back icon
  • Current View Only

Additional options are available for specific tools. For example, Edit Text is available for Text Box tools.
