Arc By Points Tool

A quicker way of creating arcs by two or three points. Quick to master and a real time-saver for such a common shape.


Orient Transform Tool

The new Orient Transform Tool allows you to pick the object you want to orient and scale simultaneously. With a single keypress to also duplicate while you transform, it's great at replicating shapes along a path proportionally.


Perpendicular and Tangency Tools

The updated Perpendicular Line Tool now comes with a keypress option to repeat the perpendiculars along the current segment or entire path uniformly or randomly.
