Lesson 5. Using Points and Paths > Adding Connector Points

Adding Connector Points

Paths can have three types of points: corner, curve, and connector. When you click to place a point with the Pen tool, you add a corner point. When you drag with the Pen tool, you add a curve point. A corner point appears as a square when selected; a curve point appears as a circle. A connector point creates a transition between a curve and a corner point. For example, suppose you are drawing a curved line using the intersection of the guides to place your points as you did in the previous task. You click to place the first point and then drag to place the second point, creating a curved path. Now you want a straight line for the next line segment. If you click for the next point, the line is curved. That is not what you want. To achieve your goal, you need a connector point.

In this task, you will practice changing a curve point to a connector point.
