The vertical toolbar shows on the left sidebar when an EER diagram tab is selected. The tools on this toolbar assist in creating EER diagrams.
Clicking a tool changes the mouse pointer to a pointer that resembles the tool icon, indicating which tool is active. These tools can also be activated from the keyboard by pressing the key associated with the tool. Locating the mouse over a toolbar icon displays a description of the tool and its shortcut key.
