Greetings,

As of the latest Beta Prime builds (Pr22.0 Beta 080 or higher) there are some pen tool improvements to help you draw shapes and move points around after the fact. 

Specifically:

  • Holding shift when adding the first point of a new shape does nothing.
  • Holding shift while single-clicking to add a new linear point constrains the angle to a 45° increment relative to the previous point.
  • Holding shift while click and drag contrains the new line to 45° and also confines the bezier handle to 45°.
  • Holding shift while moving an existing vertex constrains the movement to 45° increments.
  • Holding shift while moving existing bezier handles constrains the angle to 45° increments.
  • Opt + Shift + Click and Drag on an exisitng bezier handle will break the bezier point into two curves while constraining the one you clicked on to 45° increments.


Please try it our if you can and let us know what you think!

Is the new functionality of this similar to the pen tools in AE and Photoshop?
