  • This is a simple singular/plural issue. "Has" is used with singular, "have" with plural. "Tools" is plural. "Tool" is singular. – fixer1234 May 21 '17 at 19:19

It should be Software tools have no support for. Because Software tools is plural, you need have instead of has. On the other hand, support is usually an uncountable noun, and therefore is never plural, except in the case of "something that serves as a foundation, prop, brace, or stay"
