Tool Palette is broken up into several parts.
What we are going to look at in this tutorial deal
only with the Object Buttons, excluding the Text Button.
We will look at the Text Button in a separate tutorial.
To create the object click on the Object Button on the Tool
Palette then click on the canvas and drag until you get the
size you are looking for. Holding the shift key down while dragging
will create an object with equal sides.
You can change the properties of the object by selecting the object
and clicking on the Properties Palette. The properties which
you can change will change according to the type of object you select,
you can also change the type of object (except text)
The Transform Palette will allow you to change the size,
the location in X and Y coordinates, the rotation angle, and the
skew of the object.
You can change the color of the object by selecting the object
and clicking on the Color Palette and adjusting the RGB settings
as you want.
We will get into more detail on these palette's in a latter tutorial.
