Connecting the end of one curve to any point on another curve using only the pencil tool, without the node tool


Recommended Posts

I use the pencil tool extensively for inking on Ipad. My style involves frequently starting new lines from the middle of existing ones.

Here's my current workflow:

  1. Draw the first curve using the Pencil tool.
  2. Begin the second curve using the Pencil tool, starting from the middle of the first curve.
  3. Use the Node tool to select the starting node of the second curve.
  4. Drag the start node to the middle of the first curve.
  5. A yellow snapping indicator appears.
  6. Release the node and let it snap into place.

Here's my preferred workflow:

  1. Draw the first curve using the Pencil tool.
  2. Begin the second curve with the Pencil tool, starting from the middle of the first curve.
  3. The starting node of the second curve should automatically snap to the nearest point on the first curve.

Is it possible?

One would think yes, but I haven't found any combination of Snapping with the Pencil Tool to allow this. I too would like to be able to work like this, instead of the current Draw, Draw, Adjust, Draw, Adjust, Draw, Adjust, etc.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
