XTools Pro 18 introduces new Interactive tools for prompt and convenient editing data in the maps. Interactive editing tools are available from the new XTools Pro Interactive toolbar with the tools. 

Interactive tools have no dialog windows, parameters are predefined in the Interactive Options dialog.

All interactive tools work only with selected features in the layers for which edit session is open.

Functionality of interactive tools is similar to functionality of the standard XTools Pro tools with the same names.
