• A PDF that explains the (Pierre Bezier) vector-drawing Pen tool technique in Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. Drawing with the Pen tool takes practice. The Pen tool is nearly-but-not-quite identical in these three applications.

By learning to hold the Cmd/Ctrl key to invoke the Direct Selection tool and holding the Opt/Alt key to invoke the Anchor Point tool, you can begin to draw vector shapes more efficiently and productively. All the numerous icons are defined for all the ways the Pen tool operates. In addition, this guide shows the Path Segment Reshape Function as well as the corner-rounding widget, both of which are related to vector drawing. This two-handed technique will make drawing more productive. This document contains both macOS and Windows 10 language. The physical page size of this 1-page document is Letter size at 8.5 x 11 inches. $4.99
