Tool Palette

The Tool Palette consists of tools organized into tool categories. To build a workflow, select a tool on the Tool Palette and drag it onto the workflow canvas. You can right-click the workflow window, selecting Insert, and choose a tool from a list of tool category names to add a tool to your workflow.

To choose the tool categories and tools to display in the Tool Palette, select the Add/Remove Tools icon ("+") next to the categories. In the Configure Tool Palette window, you can...

  • Select and Deselect tool categories on the left side of the window to show and hide categories on the tool palette.
  • Highlight a tool category on the left and select and deselect tools on the right side of the window to show and hide tools in the tool category.
  • Select a preconfigured Preset option.

The Overview window provides a smaller representation of the workflow. For larger workflows, use it to pan around in the workflow canvas. It also shows you what tools have finished running.

  • The rectangle in the Overview window displays the area in view in the workflow canvas, and the shaded area indicates what is out of view.
  • To pan the workflow canvas, select and drag the rectangle in the Overview window from left to right.
  • Double-click anywhere in the Overview window when you are zoomed out to zoom in again.
