Drawing Bézier items

To draw a straight-sided Bézier line or text path:

1.
Choose the Bézier line or Bézier text path tool.

2.
Click to create an anchor point.

3.
Click to create additional anchor points . Shift-click to constrain a segment to an increment of 45°. Straight line segments will connect them.

Figure 1. Click—don't drag—to create points connected by straight segments.


4.
To end the path, select another tool or double-click when you create the last point . (More about text paths later in this chapter.)

Figure 2. Change the width, style, or color of a Bézier line as you would any other line (see Chapter 15).


Figure 3. If it's a text path, just enter and style your text as you would text in a box.


TIP

To delete a path as you're creating it: press Delete (Cmd-K/Ctrl-K).
