Curve Paths

opencurveup.pngTo construct an open curve path, select the open curve tool, either by clicking on the open curve button or by selecting Tools->Open Curve (Ctrl-K).

closedcurveup.pngTo construct a closed curve path, select the closed curve tool, either by clicking on the closed curve button or by selecting Tools->Closed Curve (Ctrl+Shift-K).

Use the primary mouse button to click on each vertex in the path.

If you have used the closed curve tool, the path will automatically be closed by inserting a curve between the end vertex and the initial vertex.
