Exploring the workspace

When you open Corel Paint Shop Pro, the main program window appears. This window is your work area. It contains the commands and tools you need to create, edit, print, and export your images.

You can save the entire workspace, including open images and their magnifications and screen positions, as well as positions and preferences of palettes, toolbars, dialog boxes, and windows. For information about using custom workspaces, see "Using custom workspaces" in the Help.

The Corel Paint Shop Pro workspace includes the following components:

• Menu bar — displays commands for performing tasks. For example, the Effects menu contains commands for applying effects to images.

• Toolbars — display buttons for common commands. For more information, see "Using toolbars" on page 18.

• Palettes — display image information and help you select tools, modify options, browse through images, manage layers, select colors, and perform other editing tasks. For more information, see "Using palettes" on page 16.

• Status bar — displays information about the selected tool or menu command, as well as information about image dimensions, color depth, and pointer position. The status bar appears at the bottom of the main program window, and unlike other toolbars, it cannot be customized or moved. For more information about viewing image information, see "Viewing images" in the Help.
