Information for users who have upgraded from TinkerTool System 1

The user interface of TinkerTool System 1 has historically grown over more than five years. In order to avoid that users needed to readapt, some features have been added at positions in the program where they fitted best at that time. However, these places were not always the most logical choice.

TinkerTool System Release 2 has a completely redesigned user interface and the opportunity was taken to clean up some parts, moving features to more appropriate locations. If you have upgraded and you are searching for missing features, please use the tables below to find their new positions within the program.
