Chapter 3. Graphics > Using the Pen Tool

Using the Pen Tool

The Pen tool is one of the most versatile tools in the Flash toolbox; it can also be one of the most difficult to master. Other vector graphics programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia FreeHand employ a similar tool, as do many drawing programs. Fortunately, Flash's Pen tool works in much the same way as these.

What makes the Pen tool so special? When mastered, it provides the quickest and most precise way to create lines and shapes. To use it effectively, however, you need to know a little bit about its overall operation.
