Lesson 6. Drawing Vector Graphics > Drawing straight segments

Drawing straight segments

You can use the pen tool to draw straight lines by clicking two anchor points, which define a segment. To create straight lines that are vertical, horizontal, or 45-degree diagonals, you can hold down Shift as you click the pen tool. This is called constraining the line.

This lesson makes extensive use of templates, to facilitate the drawing process for you as you learn to use InDesign. These templates are non-writing layers that display the final shapes. You simply trace those shapes so that your results will look exactly like the finished sample file.
