In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through the three main palette tools that can be added to a tool palette. The instructor discusses each tool and explains how to add them to your tool palette. In addition, Josh demonstrates the creation of a new block palette tool, hatch palette tool, and a command palette tool, as well as demonstrates how to edit the properties of each.

Similarly, we can select the hatch, right click and drag…with our right click to add the hatch tool.…A third tool that we can add is a command.…We would need to use…our customize user interface dialog box to accomplish this.…So, we find the command in our list,…a command we've created previously was FR5,…and we simply drag the command…from the command list portion…of the customize user interface dialog box,…onto our tool palate.…
Besides just having these tools on the tool palate,…we have certain controls for each type of tool.…For example, if I right click…on our new manhole block tool,…and go to the properties,…
