Drawing Tools

You can use the drawing tools to build lines or frames. We cover these in more detail when we discuss creating and editing shapes in Chapter 12.

Pen

Like both QuarkXPress and Illustrator, you use the Pen tools to create Bézier lines and frames. The basic Pen tool (press P) draws shapes, adds points on a path, or deletes points on a path (depending on what’s beneath the cursor). While InDesign offers several other tools “under” the Pen tool in the Tools palette, we never actually select them, because you can get them on the fly using keyboard shortcuts.
