|Scale||Displays three handles which can be dragged to resize the current selection along the corresponding X, Y, or Z axis. Only works with BaseParts (Models cannot be scaled).|
|Rotate||Displays three handles which can be dragged to spin the current selection about the corresponding X, Y, or Z axis.|
|1 Stud||Sets dragging and scaling with Select, Move, and Scale to step in 1 stud increments. Sets Rotate to spin in 45 degree increments.|
|1/5th Stud||Sets dragging and scaling with Select, Move, and Scale to step in 1/5th stud increments. Sets Rotate to spin in 15 degree increments.|
|Off||Removes increments from other tools, allowing selections to be moved, scaled, and rotated freely.|
The Insert menu contains tools to open the Toolbox and insert basic Parts.
|Toolbox||Toggles the Toolbox window open and closed. This contains all of your Models and Decals, as well as all of the models in ROBLOX's library.|

|Group||Moves all of the selected Parts into a new Model.|
|Ungroup||Removes the Model group and allows all of the Parts that were in the Model to be selected individually.|

The Test menu lets you simulate your game to test it.
|Play||Starts simulating the game and inserts your character. The drop down allows you to select Run which will start simulating the place but will not insert your character.|
