What is the Pen Tool?

Craft your vision with precision

Linearity Curve's powerful Pen Tool is a toolbox staple for every vector designer. It helps you quickly plot Bézier curves—also known as vector paths—that you can curve, edit, and close. With its precise control and accuracy, you can confidently create custom typefaces, logos, illustrations, and more.

Many design journeys start with a pencil and a sketchbook. Once you've got your design down on paper, our built-in Camera Scanner helps you capture and import it into Linearity Curve without the need for those big, old-fashioned scanners.

Add a new layer on top of your sketch layer, and begin tracing over your lines with the Pen Tool ic-pen icon.

Create curved paths, straight paths, and complex shapes by defining anchor points. Adjust the curves by manipulating the two handles connected to each anchor point.

Like the Batman and Robin of design tools, the Pen Tool and Node Tool are powerful partners. Think of the Node Tool as the Pen Tool’s sidekick! It allows you to create precise paths by adjusting the corner radius and choosing your node type.

For example, you can easily change a curved segment back into a straight line by clicking on the anchor point and selecting "Single Node" in the Style Tab. It's that easy.
