The following tools are active in the dynamic portion of the tool palette whenever the 2D Scatter Point module is active. Only one tool is active at any given time. The action that takes place when clicking in the Graphics Window with the cursor depends on the current tool. The list below describes the tools in the 2D scatter set tool palette.

Used to select individual scatter points for editing using the Edit Window. Scatter points can also be dragged with the mouse. Scatter points can be deleted. With extremely large sets of scatter points, it may become difficult to identify a scatter point with a particular ID, even if the scatter point IDs are being displayed. In such cases, the Find Point command in the Scatter Points menu can be used to quickly locate a point. The command prompts for the ID of the desired point and the point is selected.

Used to select entire scatter point sets for deletion or to designate the active scatter point set. When this tool is active, an icon appears at the centroid of the set for each of the scatter point sets. A scatter point set is selected by selecting the icon for the set.
