Environment Designer Toolbar

This toolbar is used only on the Appearance Scheme tab of the Environment Designer window. It is context sensitive to the customisable Scheme Element selected. Each time a scheme element is selected in the window list, the toolbar rebuilds itself to reflect the properties that can be customised in that Scheme Element. Tooltips can be used to make clear to you which property each tool corresponds to.
