Develop good habits: Using Keyboard shortcuts with the Adobe pen tool
Adrian joined us and demonstrated using the inbuilt hotkeys with Illustrator. He explored how to set preferences and set key combinations to get the most out of the pen tool.
I learned about the spacebar to drag your work around on the screen - that one small thing is a real gamechanger for me!
Summary - take your pen tool and ask yourself:
"Is it going to be straight, or curved?"
Use your keyboard shortcuts accordingly!
