Modifying the Pencil Settings
You can modify the Pencil tool settings such as the size, smoothing, and ends,
- In the Tools toolbar, select the Pencil tool or press Alt + /.
- In the Tool Properties view, the preview area displays the stroke that will be produced after you customize the different parameters in the Tool Properties view. Click the arrow button.
The Pencil Properties window opens.
This is where you set the minimum and maximum sizes of your drawing tool which will produce the thick and thin effect on your stroke. This works with the pressure sensitivity of a pen tablet.
|Size and Smoothness tab|
|Maximum Size||Sets the maximum width of the line.|
|Minimum Size||Sets the minimum width of the line in relation to the maximum size.|
|Smoothness||Lets you modify the central line smoothness of the line. This parameter smooths the initial movement of your line. Increasing the value will result in a smoother line with fewer control points.|
|Contour Smoothness||Optimizes the contour line smoothness of the line. This parameter will smooth the contour of the line once it has been traced; the higher the value, the fewer control points will compose your line.|
You can adjust the start, end, and joint style of a pencil line.
|Texture||See About Pencil Line Texture.|
