Lesson 1. Flash Basics > Using the Pen and Subselection Tools

Using the Pen and Subselection Tools

The pen tool is a technical drawing tool that you use to create precise paths. If you've used the pen tools in Macromedia's FreeHand or Adobe's Illustrator, you'll find that the pen tool in Flash works in much the same way. If you've never worked with a pen tool before, getting used to it will take a little practice.

The subselection tool is used to display and modify the points on pen paths. (You can also display points on lines that you import or create with other Flash drawing tools, such as the pencil, brush, line, oval, or rectangle tool, to adjust those lines.)
