Drawing with the Pen tool

What the Pen tool does

The Pen tool creates precise curved and straight line segments connected by anchor points. If you click with the Pen tool, you will create corner points and straight line segments with no direction lines . If you drag with the Pen tool, you will create smooth points and curve segments with direction lines . The distance and direction in which you drag the mouse determine the shape of the curve segment.

Figure 1. This corner point joins two straight segments. It has no direction lines.
