New Tool Preset Dialog Box

The New Tool Preset dialog box lets you create a new tool preset. You will need to select a tool, adjust the properties, and then create a tool preset for it. Once you have created a tool preset, you can make adjustments to fine-tune it, as well as create a keyboard shortcut for it. All tool presets are displayed in the Tool Presets toolbar.

For tasks related to this dialog box, see About Tool Presets.
