A newbie question to Illustrator (CS3 at the moment).
In the tools toolbar, as I understand it, if you click on the small black triangle (like in Photoshop), you get a small list of hidden tools options. However this doesn't happen here. For instance, I want to open the swirl tool, which I believe is under the rectangle tool. But when I click on the small triangle in the bottom right corner of the tool icon nothing happens and I don't get any other options.
Have I misunderstood something or am I doing something wrong?
Did you click and hold the mouse. A simple click is not enough.
You are supposed to click and hold for a moment.
Edit: Hi Larry.
If ClickHold does not work, your preferences are probably off; you may try to close down Illy, Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup, and try again.
How embarrassing; it's been a long day. Thanks guys.
