Love Illustrator’s Pen Tool? Then you’ll love InkScribe even more! Work faster and more freely when drawing meticulously in vector.

New to Illustrator’s pen tool or find it time consuming and frustrating? Then try InkScribe for a much easier and smoother way to draw precisely. Save time and concentrate on the creative process rather than learning all those key presses.

Pulling a path from straight to curved intuitively using InkScribe

Reshape Segments

Want to make straight lines into curves? We’ve introduced Ghost Handles — handles that appear when you draw a straight line. With just one drag of the mouse, ghost handles transform into bézier handles, changing the line into a curve. Or simply click and drag a path to reshape.

Toggling between corner and smooth points instantly in InkScribe

Toggle Point Types

Alternate between corner and smooth points with various quick methods rather than key presses. Save time in the initial design stage, right through to the fine-tuning of your artwork.
