I clicked on the tool item that looks like :hammer_and_wrench: and clicked the << button but it only shows thebes swatches and switch to black and white tool but no oval or brush that should come pre-installed by default in the toolbar.I have the tool bar item and expanded it with the <</>> button but when expanded is empty. The software has been reloaded too and still no luck.

No need for a second topic on the same issue.

 

Did you delete your config as I advised you in your previous thread?

If so and it still does not display the tools, what version of Flash CS6 are you using?

Don't say that you are using some 'portable' version of Flash CS6. They are not legit and everything about them is questionable. Maybe it just can't create toolConfig.xml.

 

You can try to manually insert the correct tools into the xml.

Close Flash.

Find the config folder as described in the other topic.

Find Tools.

Find toolConfig.xml

Open it in Notepad.

Paste this (below) inside and save. Then start Flash.

<group name = "selection">
	<tool name = "arrow"/>
	<tool name = "bezierSelect"/>
	<tool name = "freeXform" >
		<tool name = "fillXform"/>
	</tool>
	<tool name = "ThreeDRotate" >
		<tool name = "ThreeDXform"/>
	</tool>
	<tool name = "lasso"/>
	<separator/>
	<tool name = "pen" >
		<tool name = "penplus"/>
		<tool name = "penminus"/>
		<tool name = "penmodify"/>
	</tool>
	<tool name = "text"/>
	<tool name = "line"/>
	<tool name = "rect" >
		<tool name = "oval"/>
		<tool name = "rectPrimitive"/>
		<tool name = "ovalPrimitive"/>
		<tool name = "polystar"/>
	</tool>
	<tool name = "pencil"/>
	<tool name = "brush" >
		<tool name = "sprayBrush"/>
	</tool>
	<tool name = "deco"/>
	<separator/>
	<tool name = "ikbridgelink" >
		<tool name = "rig"/>
	</tool>	
	<tool name = "bucket" >
		<tool name = "inkBottle"/>
	</tool>

	<tool name = "eyeDropper"/>
	<tool name = "eraser"/>
	<separator/>
	<tool name = "hand"/>
	<tool name = "magnifier"/>
</group>
