By default, the toolbar is at the top of the canvas. It can be hidden and moved (though not in all versions) to give you a larger work space. It contains most of the Sketchbook tools. When you select a tool, another toolbar may appear below it, containing additional options.
The device you have (handheld device or tablet) determines which tools you see in the toolbar and what it looks like. Due to the size of some devices, you may have to swipe left or right in these toolbars to access more options.
Which tool is active?
Tap a tool in the toolbar to select it and make it active. The tool is highlighted blue. When there are two or more tools highlighted blue, that means they are all active. For example, you could have Symmetry on and a Shape tool selected.
What is the secondary toolbar for?
Some tools have a contextual toolbar, containing additional editing and transform tools to work in conjunction with the current active tool.
For even more information on toolbars, check out Selection Tools.
