Illustrator: Customized Tools Panel

This feature has been kicking around a while, but I just stumbled on it recently. You can customize and create your own Tools Panel in Illustrator!

This is great for those buried subtools that don’t have a default keyboard shortcut (looking at you, polygon tool!) or those tools that I can never find for the occasional use (knife and scissors). you can basically drag any tool from the tools menu into a new tool bar of your own making, and then have a second tool bar!

• To add tools to your own new tool bar, drag it from the default tool bar

• To remove tools from the customized tool bar, drag it out into the artboard (you have to have a document open to do this)
