Centerline Editor Tool Properties

The Centerline Editor tool allows you to edit brush strokes by their centreline rather than by their contour.  This makes it easier to tweak the tips, curves and corners of brush strokes. The purpose of this tool is to make it as easy to edit brush strokes as it is to edit pencil lines with the Contour Editor tool.

Tool Options

Icon Property Description
Selection Mode

Allows you to choose the method to visually select multiple elements:

  • Lasso: Allows you to select multiple elements by drawing a lasso around them with your mouse.
  • Marquee: Allows you to select multiple elements by drawing a rectangle around them. This is faster, as you only need to drag your mouse from one corner of the rectangle to its opposite corner, but it may not be as precise as you want.
TIP You can press and hold the Alt key to temporarily use the other selection mode.
Show Centerline Editor Controls

When enabled, selecting several control points will make a manipulator bounding box appear. You can use this manipulator to scale and rotate the selection of points.

Apply to Line and Colour Art

Allows you to perform drawing operations on both the Line Art and Colour Art layers of your drawing simultaneously.

NOTE If you have Overlay and Underlay Art layers enabled, they will also be affected when this option is enabled.
