Create mini toolbars from your go-to Tools panel selections (Illustrator CS6/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)

With advancements in customized software, there’s something to suit everyone’s work style these days! Take for example detachable tools! The Tools panel in Illustrator has so many tools to choose from, many of which you may never use. But you might be working on a project for an extended amount of time and need to keep handy a certain tool—and all of its sub tools. That’s why Illustrator offers the option to detach many of the tools along with their sub sets so you can have the tools you need visible, as opposed to cycling through the one tool spot on the panel to access each individual tool. To do this, click and hold on a tool in the Tools panel that you want to detach, such as the Pen tool. Click the long vertical bar with the arrow on the right side of the tool pop-up panel, and Illustrator will detach a smaller panel with just that tool set! (Note: Not all tools carry this functionality.)
