Default missing Pen Tool icon

When trying to find my way using the X6 version,I have trouble finding the Pen Tool icon in the
Drawing toolbar. It simply is not there.
Is there a way to show this icon in that toolbar?
I did browse the Help file but could not find a hint.
Can someone help me please?
Joe.

Hello Arun,
At first I could not understand your answer due to the fact that I only saw the
Arc Tool icon and did not notice the Pen tool when clicking the fly out.
But now it is clear. Thanks for your hint!
Joe.

You can avoid this problem occurring again by customising the flyout. Currently, it has no icon, which is by design. The icon of whichever tool was last used is displayed on the flyout. This customisation will set the icon permanently to the Pen tool. The downside is that you cannot see at a glance which tool is currently selected.
  1. Right-click on the toolbar, Customise
  2. Open the Pen Tool Flyout
  3. Right-click again on the Pen Tool Icon
  4. Copy Button Image
  5. Right-click on the Flyout icon
  6. Paste Button Image
  7. OK to accept the changes
If you later decide that you don't like this new behaviour, customise it again to reset the button image for the flyout.
