What Is The Pen Tool?
Flash Tip: Program Tools: The Pen Tool
The Pen Tool lets you draw paths to create your shapes anchor point by interconnected anchor point. It's a fairly common vector tool in most graphics programs, but can be very helpful in Flash when you're trying to draw specific shapes beyond the basic circles and squares, as it gives you more control over the minute details of every curve and angle by adjusting using each point's "handles".
