# Drawing Curves

The Curve icon on the Drawing toolbar opens a toolbar to draw Bézier curves. Bézier curves are defined by a start point and an end point, which are called "anchors". The curvature of the Bézier curve is defined by control points ("handles"). Moving a control point changes the shape of the Bézier curve.

Juhtpunktid on nähtavad ainult režiimis "Punktide redigeerimine". Juhtpunkte tähistavad ringid, andmepunkte ruudukesed. Alguspunkt on pisut suurem kui teised andmepunktid.

Bézier curve segments and straight line segments can be joined to form more complex Bézier curves. Three different transitions can be applied to join adjacent segments:

• A symmetrical anchor point has the same line curvature on either side, and two control lines that move together as a straight line.

• A smooth anchor point may have different line curvatures on either side.

• A corner anchor point has one or two independent control lines. Changing one side has no effect on the other side.

## Kõvera tööriista kasutamine

1. On the Drawing toolbar, open the Curves toolbar and select the Curve tool.

2. Click where you want the curve to start, and drag in the direction where you want the curve to go. The control line will indicate the direction.

Suuna piiramiseks 45 kraadi kordsete nurkadega tuleb lohistamise ajal all hoida klahvi Shift.

3. Release the mouse where the first control point should be.

4. Move the pointer to where you want the curve segment to end. The curve follows the pointer.

5. Tee üht järgnevast:

• Double-click on the position of the end point to finish drawing the line.

Suletud kujundi loomiseks tuleb topeltklõps teha joone algpunktil.

• Click and release the mouse button to add an anchor point. Move the mouse to draw the next segment.

• Click and drag in any direction to add a smooth anchor point.

## Vabakäejoone tööriista kasutamine

1. Ava joonistusribalt kõverate tööriistariba ja vali vabakäejoone tööriist.

2. Klõpsa kohas, kus soovid joont alustada, ja hoia hiirenuppu all.

3. Joonista vabakäejoon, nagu kasutaksid pliiatsit.

4. Joone lõpetamiseks vabasta hiirenupp.
