15.3 Shared Features

In this section, we describe the features and characteristics that are common to all or most of the drawing tools.

Drawing Tool Options

All drawing tools have options, which are normally shown in a dockable dialog attached to the Toolbox. If you close the options dialog by mistake, you can re-open it by selecting Image: Windows > Dockable dialogs > Tool Options or by double-clicking the tool icon in the Toolbox. No two drawing tools have exactly the same set of options, but most of the options are shared by a number of tools. In this section, we cover all the options that are common to at least two drawing tools.

Figure 15-2 shows all the options for the Paintbrush tool, which has the largest set of options.
