Subject: Customizing tool palettes

Tool palettes contain commands and blocks that are organized for each access while working in drawings. Each tool palette is customizable according to your needs: add new palettes, delete existing palettes, and change the order in which they display on the pane. You can also control the transparency applied to the display of any palette, which is helpful if you want to view parts of a drawing that would otherwise be hid­den by opaque tool palettes.

For details about displaying and positioning tool palettes, see Displaying and hiding the Tool Palettes pane.
