Speed Freak: troubleshooting tips > FIND THE HIDDEN MAGNETIC PEN TOOL OPTIONS

FIND THE HIDDEN MAGNETIC PEN TOOL OPTIONS

I know what you're thinking—finding the Magnetic Pen tool options? I didn't even know there was a Magnetic Pen tool in the first place. Adobe has done a great job of hiding it, and in CS, its options are buried even deeper than before. For some reason they must hate this tool. Anyway, to get to the Magnetic Pen tool (the magnetic part means it snaps to well-defined edges to help you draw accurate paths around objects), you have to start by choosing the Freeform Pen tool from the Toolbox. Only then will the subterranean magnetic checkbox surface in the Options Bar.
