When a vector layer is selected, the tools in the Draw and Fill sections of the Tools palette become available. The tools in the Draw section let you create and manipulate new points, curves, and shapes; the tools in the Fill section let you change and manipulate the fill and stroke applied to an object.
Whenever a tool is selected, it is highlighted yellow, its icon appears in the top left corner of the main window in the Options bar, any tool settings appear in the Options bar, and information on how to use the selected tool appears in the status bar directly underneath the Options bar.
Directly below the Draw tools are the Fill tools, as shown in Figure 13.1.
