Chapter 5. Drawing > Drawing Basic Shapes

Drawing Basic Shapes

The basic shapes tools (the Rectangle, Polygon, Ellipse, and Line tools, and their frame-drawing counterparts) don’t draw anything you couldn’t draw using the Pen tool (discussed later in this chapter) or (even) the Pencil tool; they just make drawing certain types of paths easier. They’re shortcuts.

The operation of the basic shapes tools is straightforward: drag the tool and get a path of the corresponding shape. If you want to draw a frame, you can either use the frame-drawing variant of the tool, or draw the path and then convert it to a frame.
