With the “Curve” tool you click
once to set points and it draws a
smooth curve through those
points. Double click to end the
line.
The “Freeform” tool draws straight
lines between mouse clicks and
curved lines if you move the mouse
with the button down. Click on the
start point to make a closed shape.

The “Pencil” tools allows you to
scribble any line shape by drawing
with the mouse button held down.
Each of these tools draw
objects that can be resized,
moved, and formatted for
line and fill, and shape
effects
The points that are used to draw these objects
can also be edited by choosing “Edit Points”
from the “Drawing Tools – Format – Edit Points.
Point
Drag the end of the blue
handles to control
direction and length of
line at that point
Clicking on a point selects it and allows you
to move it. When selected 2 handles adjust
the angle of the line that goes through that
point. Clicking on the line itself inserts a new
point. Ctrl click a point to delete it.
Using these tools it is possible to create very
complex shapes. You might use these tools to
trace a part of a image so you could highlight it
with a semi-transparent fill or a bright outline.
