The "Tool Options Panel" displays the options you have available to apply to the current tool you're using. For the tools that can create multiple layers at the same time the panel contextually display the available options for the selected type of layers.

The panel's icon is the current active tool is being used.

The values of the "Tool Options Panel" parameters are stored between tool usages and between SynfigStudio sessions, so you can reuse them as may times as you like.

This is the list of available options for each tool:

The Tool Options Panel allows you to specify:

  • Name : Used for the new layer; any number in this field will automatically increment with each layer created
  • Layer Type : Whether create Star Layer and/or Outline, Advanced Outline, Region, Plant and Curve Gradient layers (Splines)
  • Blend Method : The blending method used to composite on the layers below
  • Opacity : Sets the Amount for new layers. Defaults to 1.00 (Completely opaque)
  • Brush Size : Sets the Outline width or the size of the gradient (only for Outline, Advanced Outline and Curve Gradient)
  • Spline Points : Specify the number of Spline Points that will be used in the new Splines (for other than Circle Layer)
  • Offset : Offset of the tangent of the Spline Points (for other than Circle Layer)
  • Invert : Whether invert the create(d) layer(s). Is related to his Invert.
  • Feather : Width of the area to be dissolved at the edge (not for Plant and Curve Gradient)
  • Falloff : Determines the falloff function for the feather (only for Circle Layer)
  • Link Origins : Whether Link the Offset of Splines
  • Spline Origins at Center : Set the origin of the layer at the center of the circle, else the center is set at the Canvas center

Spline Tool Options.png

This tool has the following options:

  • Name : The name of the Spline that you will create is set by the text input box. In this case it is "NewSpline007". This input text will parse the end of the string if any integer number is found, increasing that number for the next time you create other Spline. If not number is found it adds a three digit number for the next Spline created.
  • Layer Type : Whether create Region and/or Outline, Advanced Outline, Plant and Curve Gradient layers.
  • Blend Method : The blending method used to composite on the layers below.
  • Opacity : Sets the Amount for new layers. Defaults to 1.00 (Completely opaque).
  • Brush Size : Sets the size of the line for Outline Layer and/or Advanced Outline Layer.
  • Feather : There you set the feather parameter of the Region or Outline Layer created.
  • Link Origin : If enabled it links the Origin for the Plant, Region or Outline if two of them (or all them) are checked.
  • Auto Export : If checked it automatically exports the Vertices parameter (that's a Spline type parameter)
