Editing curves

To adjust the curves you’ve drawn, you can drag either the curve’s anchor points or its direction handles. 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 handles 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.
Make sure the fill is set to none. If not, click the Fill box in the Control palette. When the Swatches palette appears click the None box.

4.
Now select the Pen tool () and drag to draw the small curve on the pear where the arrow pierces 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.
