2 Basic questions for the price of one

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, 


Newbie Mark here again. Quick question for all you experienced people. What tool is best to use if you just want to draw a simple dead straight line? and this sort of brings me on to questions 2. When using the Pen tool do you have to complete the lines, i.e join the nodes together or can you end it at any point? Does that make sense?


Cheers folks

Hi Mark,

You can use the Pen Tool. If you enable Polygon mode (or Line mode) in the context toolbar it will draw only straight lines. Check the Mode section in the context toolbar. The Polygon mode continues drawing the line every time you click on canvas until you press ESC. Line mode starts a new line as soon as you finish the first line (segment).
