Accessible through the D (like Draw) key, or on the left of the viewer, the "Shape Tool " allows to draw lines, curves or solid shapes.


The Shape Tool offers 5 modes


  • Fill: the created curve is filled with a constant color.
  • Stroke: the curve is rendered as a stroke only.
  • Fill and stroke: a combination of the two preceding modes:
    • Two layers are created and the Path group is shared between them.
    • This mode is only accessible from the Option Bar at the top
  • Fill and feather: shaded shape regarding "feather point" attached to each point
  • Follow path: the curve is used to transform to layer. A detailed description and workflow can be found in the Drive Layers By Curve section.
