 +====== QuickTools overview ======
  
 +The QuickTools section of QuickShow is one of the most unique aspects of the program. QuickTools allow you to quickly and easily create new content without disturbing the currently-playing laser show.
 +
 +The QuickTools are found at the bottom of the [[quickshow:main_control_window|Main Control Window]], and are shown below.
 +

 + 
 +
 +All of the QuickTools work in a similar manor. You click on the tab that corresponds to the type of content you want to create, enter some basic parameters, and then either Show it now or drag and drop the content to a cue for later playback.
 +
 +===== Brief explanation =====
 +
 +Below, each QuickTool is discussed separately.
