Status Bar


The status bar runs along the bottom of the application window. It displays helpful and explanatory messages about events happening in the software. It also has a small bank of buttons on the right side to control various features of the software.


A status bar message is shown when a new tool is selected, an operation is performed on the map or options are changed in the software. Make sure to read these messages as they'll often include useful hints and tips about additional features of certain tools and serve as a reminder of what modifier keys are supported.


To hide or restore the status bar, click the interface elements toolbar button located on the far right of the main toolbar (the down-arrow to the immediate right of the main Toggle Side Panel button) and choose Status Bar from the menu.
