Draw a freeform path

To draw a path that produces a pixel everywhere that your mouse cursor touches, you use the Pencil tool. The result is a Path object whose points (or vertices) you can modify.


For a quick reference of modifications that you can make to a path, see Pen and direct selection usage.
