Tool Palette Functions

The Tool Palette contains frequently-used functions and modes. In a multi-display setup, the Tool Palette will follow the cursor from one display to another.

The Tool Palette buttons, from left to right:

Interaction mode:

  • Normal mode: Use drag-and-drop mouse gesture to pan and the mouse scroll wheel to zoom/out the visualization area.

  • Create annotation mode: Crop a rectangle area to create annotation over loaded core images.

  • Modify annotation marker mode: Select and highlight a created annotation to modify circled area and the annotation flag icon's position.

  • Measure mode: To specify the start and end of an interested segment. The physical measurement will be calculated based on the mapping information specified in the Display settings of Preferences configuration.

Cursor type:

  • Regular navigation cursor: Only the mouse cursor will be displayed in the visualization canvas.

  • CrossHair cursor: In additional to the mouse cursor, a crosshair indicating the current depth will be displayed in the visualization canvas.

Common system actions:

  • Show/Hide main window: Show or hide the session/iCores window.
