Illustrator: Curvature tool

2015/09/03 1 comment

I don’ t know if it’s because I’m so used to the pen tool, but this tool feels a bit weird to me. But basically, instead of straightlines being the default, curve lines are the default. you can still draw straight lines, but it takes a bit more work to do so (double click or alt click to change the type of anchor point it’s supposed to be). overall i found it to work pretty well, but it seems to have trouble drawing loops!

Also, if i select a loop (drawn with the pen tool) and with the curvature tool, once i click on the anchor point, it immediately changes it to a normal curve instead!

  • click to place anchor points
  • Illustrator connects points with curves
  • Double click / alt click to change the next anchor point to a straight point
  • hover back at previous points to edit
  • esc/cmd click to exit tool
