New Pen Tool Features that Make it Easier to Draw in Illustrator


Illustrator just released AICC 2014 and there are some really great updates to the Pen Tool. I of course had to create this short video tutorial to show you these and how they can help speed up your workflow.

My favorite (and I can’t believe it took so long to add this one!) is the path preview. That’s right, you’ll now be able to see exactly what the path will look like instead of wondering what results you’ll get. This will help you learn and understand how handles affect the curvature of the path.

Here’s what you will learn:

  • How to preview the path that the Pen Tool is going to draw (so you can stop guessing!) (0:22)
  • How to move an Anchor Point when you close a shape (without using the Direct Selection Too) (2:06)
  • Shortcuts to adjust paths and curves (while you sketch!) (3:44)
