Stroke Tool Options

When you select the Stroke tool, its properties and options appears in the Tool Properties view.

Here are the options available for the Stroke tool:

Draw Stroke as Straight Lines
Connect Line Ends
Auto-Flatten Mode
Central Line Smoothness

Draw Stroke as Straight Lines

Enable the Draw Stroke as Straight Lines option if you want the new strokes that you will draw to be a perfect straight line. Disable the option if you want the stroke to follow the mouse gesture.

Connect Line Ends

Enable the Connect Line Ends option if you want the start or end point of your new stroke to connect to your existing strokes to make sure no gaps are left in your drawing.

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.

Central Line Smoothness

You can modify the Central Line Smoothness of your line using this option. This parameter smoothes the initial movement of your line. Increasing the value will result in a smoother line with fewer control points.
