Polyline Tool Options

When you select the Polyline tool, its properties and options appear in the Tool Properties view.

These are the options available for the Polyline tool:

Snap to Contour
Create Colour Art Automatically
Auto-Flatten Mode
Pencil Templates
Thickness Adjustment
Maximum/Minimum Size: Defines the minimum and maximum width of the stroke.
Smoothing: Defines the number of control points added to the centre line.
Contour Smoothing: Defines the number of control points added to the contour boundaries (around the line). Lower values mean that the line will appear as you draw it (with more control points added along the centre line). Higher values mean that the line will be smoothed out (removing control points from the centre line).

Adjusting Polyline Style

Snap to Contour

The Snap to Contour option will snap your selection to any line you position it on.

Create Colour Art Automatically

As you draw in the Line Art layer, the Create Colour Art Automatically automatically creates the corresponding strokes in the Colour Art layer.

Auto-Flatten Mode

When enabled, the Auto-Flatten mode automatically flattens the new lines created with the existing artwork as you draw in the Drawing or Camera view. Brush strokes will flatten with brush strokes and pencil lines will flatten with pencil lines.

Pencil Templates

Toon Boom Harmony gives you the flexibility to change the style and thickness of your pencil lines even after they are drawn. You can apply preset templates or create your own.

Refer to Working with Templates, Creating a Pencil Templatewith the Select Tool and Applying a Pencil Template.
