The local menu, sometimes called the context menu, popup menu or context-sensitive menu, is opened by right-clicking the mouse. The contents of this menu differ depending on where you right-click, and in which tool you are working.

Note: You can customize the contents of the local menu via Tools / Customize.

When working in a tool, options on the local menu also appear in the Inspector Bar. In addition to customizing local menu items, you can add popup toolbars - icons that will appear each time you open the local menu.


The following items are found on most local menus: Cancel: Cancels the current operation, and exits without completing. Undo: Undoes the last operation and return to the previous condition. The last operation is displayed here. Redo: Reverses Undo. Properties: Opens the Properties window. Local Snap: Sets the snap mode for the next point only.

Note: You can also view customized keyboard shortcuts in local menu.
