Once you understand how soundfonts work (through the different editors), tools are probably what you should care of. They are all designed to fasten / automate the editing and to avoid common errors or imprecision that a human usually does.

Tools are all available in a menu that is displayed when clicking on the toolbox icon in the toolbar. The content of this menu depends on the selection in the tree: first on the kind of selection (as described below) but also on the number of selected elements. A few tools cannot process multiple elements so they will be hidden with a multiple selection.

Global tools

When the header General is selected in the tree, the tool menu is filled with global tools.
