There are 10 tools plus an optional set of shortcut keys.
These 4 tools work on selected map annotation:
? anno ("Which anno"): Tells you which annotation layer the selected annotation is in, and sets the active anno target.
(De)Halo: Remove halos from all selected annotation by setting their size to 0, or make all their halos the same size and color without affecting any of their other properties.
CopyFormat/FormatPainter (the paintbrush icon): select some text, click the paintbrush to copy that text's format, click other text to paste the format.
SmoothAnno: For curved annotation with too many control points; this will get rid of all of them and add Bezier handles to the endpoints. It changes the curve to a straight line, but makes it easy to smooth it after that.
These 5 work on layer(s) selected (not the layers’ features, just click on the layer name(s) prior to use) in the TOC:
#a, #f: toggles the name of the layer in the TOC--either back to it's feature class name or to the FC name plus the number of attributes and the number of features. ("states" becomes "states 5a 135f") Useful for quick check of size of data without opening table.
BufferFade: After you make multi-ring buffers, click to add the “transparen” field and calculate the percentage values, and symbolize without a border.
gdb2shp: Export geodatabase to shapefile and decode coded domains.
Dissolve: Include first occurrence of additional fields, but remove the "FIRST_" from the field name.
Edit: starts editing in the workspace of the selected layer and sets it as the target.
This 1 tool works with the visible layers:
Transparent?: pops up window listing all visible layers with an input box to show and set their transparency. Draws a horizontal line where rasterization will occur when exporting to pdf.
