Using the Toolbar

​The toolbar allows you to interact with the map by clicking on the map with a tool.  For example, if you click in the toolbar on the Zoom In tool, then click the map, the map will zoom in around where you click.

You can also interact with the map using the keyboard.  Also see Using the mouse for tips on using the mouse to interact with the map.
