Using Hints

Hints provide information about tools in the toolbox from within the application. When you click a tool, a hint appears, telling you how to use the tool. If you need additional information about a tool, you can access a relevant Help topic by clicking the Help button in the upper-right corner of the Hints docker.

Hints are displayed by default in the Hints docker on the right side of the program window, but you can hide them when you no longer need them. For information about working with dockers, see “Dockers.”
