This will change the outline color when clicking and dragging the line across the object with the use of the tool. For example, if you already have a lot of red objects on your canvas, you may want to use this drop-down menu to change your highlight color.

Questions and Answers
Object dimensions change after filling with the Shape Builder Tool/Paint Bucket Tool?
Hello, I already wrote in Adobe forum about this issue (https://forums.adobe.com/message/8339546#8339546) and tried all suggestions to solve this problem, but still nothing...I'm using Mac and newest Illustrator CC version (19.2.0). So the problem is that when I fill an object with a Shape Builder Tool/Paint Bucket Tool that object dimensions always changes. You can see an example in a picture - https://www.dropbox.com/s/qkvhhtej46pdhx4/Screen%2BShot%2B2015-12-27%2Bat%2B03.07.24.png?dl=0 (it's just an example, I don't use bucket for simple objects like this circle, but for more complicated objects it's very useful). I created 35x35mm circle and used Shape Builder Tool 3 times in a row and each time I got different results. This problem occurs only with millimeters. Maybe you know how to solve this problem? This is very important to me, because I just can't work like this. It would be very helpful to get an answer. Thank you.
