Hi,

the Active Tool Manager was removed in R9 - the current tool settings are now displaye in the Attribute Manager. But you can create an own Active Tool Manager by creating a new Attribute Manager (Window -> Attribute Manager), setting it to tool mode (AM menu -> Mode -> Tool) and constraining it to tools (AM menu -> Mode -> Configure Modes -> deactivate everything except "Tool").

I for myself prefer the new way of working with tool and object attributes shown in one window. By pressing the space bar two times you get always the atttributes of the current tool. Or you can lock the AM temporarily (e.g. useful for the MOCCA Bone Tool).

Happy rendering,
Marcus
