Review questions

1:Why is the direct-selection tool more useful than the selection tool when drawing or editing paths?
A1: The selection tool displays only the path's bounding box. The direct-selection tool displays the path itself, and the exact location of the anchor points on it.
2:What is the key difference between smooth and corner points?
A2: The two direction lines of a smooth point always exist at the same angle. The direction lines of a corner point (if present) usually exist at different angles, creating a corner at the anchor point.
3:Which tool can change an anchor point from a corner point to a smooth point or vice versa?
A3: You can switch between smooth and corner points using the convert-direction-point tool (). It's grouped with the pen tool in the toolbox.
4:How do you make sure that a transformation (rotating, scaling, etc.) occurs in relation to the center of an object?
A4: With the object selected, click the center of the proxy () in the Transform palette.
