The layout window contains several toolbars for changing list layout and attributes. A toolbar is made up of a frame containing a header and other elements depending on the type of toolbar it is (icons, for example).

Notes on the functions available from individual toolbars are displayed in the lower left window on your screen whenever you click on a toolbar's header. Consult the corresponding passages in the online documentation on the Query Painter for more detailed information.
