N.S.L: WEEK 137 – Illustrator CC 17.1: “Enhanced Reshape Tool” Creative Cloud

Living in the Clouds, we’ve been showered with new features =D

Adobe Illustrator Pen Tool

Reshaping is more accessible now.

You have access to this enhanced feature in 3 different areas, so it comes in handy =)

That cursor shows when you’re ready to edit

Cursor changes for Reshaping

Pen Tool: When you hover over a segment and hold down the Alt/Option key
Anchor Point Tool: Just by hovering over a segment
Direct Select Tool: Hover over curved segments. If the segment is straight, it is not available.


I really like that we have access to it in more locations and the best part is that I don’t see it adding anchor points to make the edits. I’d probably use it most with the Pen Tool in my workflow.


I got all my info from:
