Editing curves

To adjust the curves you've drawn, you can drag the curve's anchor points or its direction lines. You can also edit a curve by moving the line.

1.
Select the direct-selection tool (), and click the outline of the pear.

Clicking with the direct-selection tool displays the curve's direction lines and lets you adjust the shape of individual curved segments. Clicking with the selection tool selects the entire path.

2.
Click the anchor point G at the top right of the pear to select it, and adjust the segment by dragging the top direction handle as shown in the illustration.

Use direct-selection tool to select individual segments.

Select anchor point.

Adjust anchor point.

3.
In the toolbox, click the Fill box to select it. Then click the None box to change the Fill to None.

4.
Now select the pen tool () and drag to draw the small curve on the pear where the arrow will pierce it. (Use the dashed line on the template as a guide.)

Note

If you can't see the dashed, curved line on the template, make sure that the Fill in the toolbox is set to None and that the Stroke is set to black.

5.
Choose File > Save.
