In earlier versions of GoLive, what looked like a toolbox was really just the Objects palette, which allowed you to drag precoded objects onto your page. GoLive CS2 introduces a much welcomed, dedicated Tools palette (Figure 51).
The Objects palette is now grouped with the tools but you can separate them if you'd like (see #5). Let's explore these new tools and see just how they're used.
Standard Editing tool: Perform common tasks such as moving and resizing objects and editing text. This is essentially the tool that was implied in earlier versions of GoLive.
Object Selection tool: Select and move any object except text, much like the Selection tool found in Illustrator and InDesign. Double-click a layer with this tool to switch to the Standard Editing tool and edit its contents, such as text.
Layer tool: Draw and position layers on a page as you would draw frames in InDesign. Hold down Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) as you drag on the edge of a layer to reposition it.
Grid Text Box tool: Draw and position text boxes on a layout grid. The Grid Text Box tool hides underneath the Layer tool.
Eyedropper tool: Sample a color from text or an object on a page and apply it elsewhere using this Adobe standard tool. Click and then drag to actively sample a color from anywhere on your screen.
Hand tool: Pan around your document quickly using this Adobe standard tool.
Zoom tool: Magnify a document up to 1600%. Drag a marquee around the area you want to focus on. Hold down Option/Alt and click to zoom out. Double-click the Zoom tool to revert to 100% view.
