Make immediate use of Illustrator’s brushes! Plus we’ve now introduced a real time 'live preview stroke widths' preference which now shows a preview of the width of the sketch path as it is being drawn.
Trim any path by using the new Trim and Join tool, or the eraser end of a tablet stylus if operating in the Dynamic Sketch tool. Draw easily by intuitively removing unwanted parts of a single or multiple paths. This takes just one strike of your mouse or pen.
The Pulled cursor helps you draw smooth, elegant lines and sharp, accurate corners with your mouse, trackpad or tablet. With the new string feature you can create perfect curves, even without a steady hand. It also allows you to apply maximum pressure at the start of a path.
