Here’s a little Photoshop comparison for you. In Photoshop
things can get complex in a hurry. You have to know what layer you’re currently
working on, there can be more than one layer within the active layer. So you
have to know which 1 of those is selected. Amongst an untold numbers of layers.
The tools themselves, get pretty complex as well. And most
of them do an incredible number of features.
As Rick pointed out, SnagIt can actually hide which tool is
selected from you in the properties panel. If the favorites panel is opened. That’s
a design flaw that needs to be addressed.
Photoshop won’t do that to you. The tool selected always
appears as an icon in the left toolbar. And it also appears as an icon on the
top toolbar. All the properties applied to the tool appear in the top toolbar.
That’s where you can adjust their parameters as well.
So my mind is programmed to check the toolbars to see what
tool is selected. And what it will do if used. I could probably get used to
having colorful icons floating around my cursor. But at 1st glance I
found them distracting and not helpful.
