  Undo The Undo operation reverts the open icon image to its state before the last editing change was made. Multiple levels of Undo are available. Please note that some operations, such as adding and removing subicons or layers and all operations with icons in libraries cannot be reversed with Undo.
Redo The Redo operation reverts the document to its state before the last Undo was performed. Redo can only be performed after an undo (or after a series of undos).

  Smooth resampling Toggles the smooth resampling mode for moved or copied image areas.
  RGB lock This mode works with the 32-bit images only. When RGB Lock is on, the drawing tools will change not the color of the pixels but their transparency only.
Transparency lock This mode works with 32-bit images only. When Transparency Lock is on, the drawing tools will change the color of the pixels without affecting their transparency.
  Layers Toggles the layer mode.
  Grid Toggles the display of pixel grid.
  Perspective Grid Toggles the display of perspective grid for Windows XP style icons.
  Zoom in Click these buttons to change the zoom level.
