Chapter 5. Drawing > Drawing Paths with the Pencil Tool

Drawing Paths with the Pencil Tool

The quickest way to create a freeform path on an InDesign page is to use the Pencil tool. Click the Pencil tool in the Tools palette (or press N), then drag the Pencil tool on the page. As you drag, InDesign creates a path that follows the cursor, automatically placing corner and curve points as it does so (see Figure 5-11).

Figure 5-11. Drawing with the Pencil Tool

Select the Pencil tool and position it where you want the path to start.

Drag the Pencil tool on the page or pasteboard.

When the path looks the way you want it to, stop dragging.

As you drag the Pencil tool, InDesign positions curve and corner points.
