The Pen Tool is used to draw paths made of bezier curves; beziers can form unclosed paths or closed shapes. The pen tool is useful for drawing figures with smooth curves, and can be particularly efficient for tracing images (e.g. for rotoscoping).
Start the Pen Tool one of three ways:
Left-click on the canvas to create the first node.
To draw a straight segment, click again where you want the segment to end; a straight segment will be drawn between these two points.
To draw a curved segment, click to add a new node and hold down the mouse button, then drag to adjust the curve of the segment (this also makes curve control handles appear).
To end a path, either click the first node of the path (if you want it to be a closed shape), or press Enter or double-click (if you want the path to remain open); right-clicking will add a new node and end pat editing at the same time.
To continue a path that has been previously drawn, select the path and start the Pen Tool; then click either the beginning or end node and add segments as normal.
To remove the most recently added segment/node, press Delete.
