Image Toolbar

The Image Toolbar is a command center that resides at the top of Mira Image Windows. This toolbar provides user interface connections to frequently used display and measurement tools, It also shows the coordinates of the mouse pointer as it moves over the displayed image.

The Image Toolbar includes controls for adjusting the display, making some interactive measurements, and getting information about the image. Since most of these functions are duplicated in other menus and toolbars, you may choose to hide the Image Toolbar to save space. A point sample is obtained dynamically and reported in the toolbar when the cursor roams over the image.

The controls on the Image Toolbar are organized into the groups described below.
