Chapter 8. STROKES > Using the Pencil

Using the Pencil

Like the Brush tool, the Pencil tool creates paths. However, the default setting for the size and shape of the Pencil tool creates thin lines that resemble a pencil.

To use the Pencil tool:

1.
Click the Pencil tool in the Tools panel 7.

2.
Drag a path on the page. The Stroke panel settings automatically change to the Pencil tool settings.

3.
Choose one of the preset settings for the Pencil tool 8.

4.
Drag to create a Pencil path. The path that is created is stroked with the Pencil stroke settings.

Tip

When you select the Brush or the Pencil tools, any fill that was set in the Fill panel resets automatically to None.

Tip

Paths created by the Pencil tool can be changed by applying any of the stroke categories.
