If you use any other computer programs, then you’re probably familiar with using menus and the mouse. Anime Studio uses the standard paradigm for interacting with the interface, but there are some interface controls that may be new to you.
If you ever get confused trying to identify a specific tool or button in the interface, you can use the available tooltips to discover a button’s name. Tooltips are text bubbles, as shown in Figure 2.8, that appear when you hold the mouse cursor still over the top of a button; they reveal the button’s name and keyboard shortcut, if it has one. If the tooltips get annoying after a while, that’s just too bad, as there is currently no way to disable them.
