The "Path" tool allows you to draw geometric shapes made up of consequential segments of line and curve type.
This tool can be activated through the keyboard by pressing the [P] key.
Draw and add line segments to a Path
Click inside the work area, move the mouse to set the segment length and, finally, click again to complete the segment creation phase. After creating several segments, clicking on the start point of the path, you can close the path, thus creating a closed path.
Draw and add curve segments to a Path
Click inside the work area, move the mouse to set the end point of the curve segment and, finally, press and hold the mouse button and drag to set the curvature. After adding a curve segment, the following segments will also be of the curved type and will form a continuous curve.
To end a curve insertion phase and continue with a new line segment or, non-continuous curve with respect to the previous one, click on the last point of the path.
Actions and modes of the tool
Press the [ESC] key to exit the drawing action.
