slicer messages- "tool head outside print area"

What does this mean? Is the tool head the nozzle point?  Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Means something you are slicing extends outside the printable area. Aka:greater than 210x210x250 mm.

Often it's the skirt or support patterns that are created when you slice.

Yes, essentially the nozzle. Do check to see if a brim or skirt extending beyond the printed part might be off the edge.
