Drawing Tools

Here are the drawing tools available in Storyboard Pro, followed by the types of layer on which they are supported. If you are editing a vector layer, then all of the tools are available to you. If you are drawing on a bitmap layer, some tools are not available. When tools are not available, they are grayed out in the Tools toolbar.

Each drawing tool has a series of options to customize its behaviour and drawing style. When you select a tool, the Tool Properties view displays the properties of the currently selected tool, where you can configure your drawing tool's behavior and style, if applicable.

NOTE: By default, the Tools toolbar is displayed vertically on the left side of the interface. For convenience, you can display the Tools toolbar horizontally—see Tools Toolbar.
