Drawing with either the Line or Shape tool is all about endpoints; specifying where the line or shape begins and ends on the canvas is all you need to do.
To get started, follow these steps:
1. Select either the Line or Shape tool from the Tools palette.
2. Create a starting point with your mouse or stylus on the canvas.
3. Drag the mouse or stylus to the ending point and release to create the line or shape.
If you're drawing a curve, you need to set the bend by dragging the line until you reach the desired point and then click the canvas.
If you're working with the Polyline tool, continue dragging and clicking endpoints. To complete a shape, simply click the starting point again.
To create a perfectly circular, square, or polygonal shape, hold down the Shift key when using the Shape tool.
