Hello everyone,

I want to create my own shapes with the path tool but its not available in my Adobe Animate and I can't find it - Its nowhere in the toolbar (not in any subsections too).

What am I missing?
Please help!

Thanks in advance!

Cheers
Kevin

Click on the three dots at the bottom of the tools panel - it's in there.

I assumed "Pen" was what was meant by "path" tool -  especially since it lies off the main panel (I think, since the 2020 update).

Well, pens and paths are completely different things in Animate, so let's see how this goes.

Obviously I'm new to Animate ClayUUID, and since I didn't have the tool to look for its name I named it how its called in basicly every other adobe programm. So please don't be so elitist about it. Thanks. If you're so confused about it and don't know what I was refering to, maybe sit this one out. Freelance77 put 1 and 1 together and knew directly what I was talking about.
Thanks for the effort tho I guess.

Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, and Animate all call that tool the Pen Tool. Which Adobe products have a "Path Tool"?

Thanks Freelance77! First time I clicked it nothing came up. After I restarted, I was able to put the Pen tool in my tool bar.
Cheers to you!
