Lesson 5. Using Points and Paths > Using the Bezigon Tool

Using the Bezigon Tool

In the previous lessons, you used the basic drawing tools to draw rectangles, circles, polygons, and lines. When you want to create shapes other than those, you need to use either the Pen tool or the Bezigon tool. Although the two tools share the same cursor (the pen cursor), they are quite different in the way they place points on the path.

As a child, you may have created drawings by following a series of numbered dots. The Bezigon tool works great for that type of drawing: shapes with straight line segments. With the Bezigon tool, you click to place a point. You can move the point by dragging it before you add the next point. You can also create curves with the tool, but these are harder to control. If you are familiar with pen tools in other applications, you may find the Bezigon tool awkward because it doesn’t behave like a pen tool. If you are new to pen tools, then this tool is a great way to start.
