    Q: What are the keyboard shortcuts for RAWBInfo?
    A:
    • A mouseclick on a tooltype while holding down the SHIFT key activates or deactivates it.
    • As you know you can drag and drop an icon over the tooltypes editor to replace the tooltypes, but when you hold down SHIFT before releasing the mouse button--and this is the new feature--the tooltypes of the icon you've dropped on the editor will be inserted instead (so they don't replace the current ones).
