Chapter 24. XTRA TOOLS > Using the Roughen Tool

Using the Roughen Tool

The Roughen tool takes clean, smooth paths and makes them irregular and ragged. This can be very useful in making artwork look hand-drawn, or less “perfect.”

To set the Roughen tool options:

1.
Double-click the Roughen tool in the Xtra Tools toolbar 16. This opens the Roughen dialog box 17.

2.
Use the Amount slider to increase the number of segments per inch that are added using the tool.

3.
Set the Edge options as follows:

  • Rough adds corner points to create the rough edge.

  • Smooth adds curved points to create the rough edge. This creates a less harsh edge to the object.

4.
Click OK.
