Lesson 9. Basic Pen Tool Techniques > Creating separate work paths

Creating separate work paths

When you drew straight segments earlier in this lesson, you drew a vertical line, an angled line, a zigzag line, and a closed line (the triangle). All of these lines were subpaths of the Straight Lines work path in the Paths palette.

Sometimes you’ll want to separate the different lines you draw as entirely distinct named paths, so that you can assign additional properties on the path level. In such a case, you start a new Work Path by first deselecting the current path in the Paths palette and then starting to draw.
