If you need to use some of the additional tools often, you can tear off the additional tools into their own toolbar. To tear off additional tools, do the following:

  • 1. Click and hold on the tool you want to see the additional tools for.
  • 2. While holding down your mouse button drag your mouse to the end of the tools to the button with the black triangle.
  • 3. Let go of the mouse button to make the additional tools and new toolbar.
