Status bar Prompt line

The prompt line, located at the bottom of the window under the status line, provides ongoing feedback, based on the current cursor position and the current program activity. When you don’t know what to do next, look down here for instructions.

Depending on what you are doing, the prompt line displays instructions that tell you what 3ds Max Design expects or what you can do next. For example, when you click the Move button, the prompt line reads "Click and drag to select and move objects."

Tooltips are also displayed on the prompt line as your cursor passes over icons in any toolbar and the status bar.
