Pulling a path from straight to curved intuitively using InkScribe

Reshape Segments

Want to make straight lines into curves? We’ve introduced Ghost Handles — handles that appear when you draw a straight line. With just one drag of the mouse, ghost handles transform into bézier handles, changing the line into a curve. Or simply click and drag a path to reshape.

Toggling between corner and smooth points instantly in InkScribe

Toggle Point Types

Alternate between corner and smooth points with various quick methods rather than key presses. Save time in the initial design stage, right through to the fine-tuning of your artwork.

    :

    This is the most essential plug-in I own. The pen tool has become a pale imitation of this phenomenal tool. I use this for every single project I work on.

    Essential part of my drawing setup.

    :

    InkScribe makes the native pen tool look like it was from the stone age. It’s become an integral part of my daily vector workflow and I can’t work without it! You’ll eventually say: “Pen tool? What’s a pen tool? Oh, you mean InkScribe!”

    Great tool for hand lettering vectorizing

  6. 5 out of 5

    :

    I can’t say enough positive things about the Astute lineup of Vector tools. This particular tool has come in so handy for designing fonts. Not only does it increase my design speed, but indispensable for my creative flow in exploring new aspects I would have never considered before.
