The first thing you should do after you select a tool
is set its options in the options bar. By default, the options bar appears
below the shortcuts bar at the top of the work area. The options bar is
context sensitive, which means that it changes as you select different
tools. Some settings in the options bar are common to several tools, and
some are specific to one tool.

specific tool, search for the tool's name in online Help.
To return a tool or all tools to the default settings:
Click the tool icon in the options bar, then choose
Reset Tool or Reset All Tools from the context menu.
