More precision with the Knife Tool
I'd like to see more adjustment options for the knife tool. Something like the pencil tools option of Tolerances: Fidelity and Smoothness. It sure would help with more precision when I cut and ink my manga characters. Rather than go in after I make a cut and have to move a lot of anchor points and handles around by hand to get the precision I was after in the first place.
I hope you can understand what I'm texting about here and I hope you take this issue up and include it in a future feature update. Oh yea, and also if it would be possible to make it where we can set a hotkey option to the knife and scissor tool as well. Thanks for your time and a great program.
I have the same issue and I need this tool to do shading- it's really irritating how it totally smoothes the drawn curve making it look compleatly diffrent to what i wanted to get.
My knife also needed sharpening and thankfully I was able to send it back to the headquarters of people who made the boker knife.
They were really helpful as I had bought it from Amazon and not their official website after reading about them as the best high end edc knife here: https://smokekitchen.net/best-high-end-edc-knife/. If you want one, definitely buy it from a trusted site like amazon and after reading a review on it.
Sean, it would help if you record a video or a GIF (LICEcap would help) to show how exactly it doesn’t work for you compared with large objects.
I am holding out hope for a more powerful and accurate knife tool one day.. just don't cut small objects where I want at all.
I think the Knife tool default should be straight cuts rather than curved. If this were the case, you could draw a cutting path---point by point---very precisely. You can't do this now since you have to hold the mouse button down for each segment, release and then hold to begin the next straight cut. Keeping the mouse button down works fine for curved cuts. Make the curved cut operation the ALT-ernative.
Hi, I agree, I would be also very happy if this feature would be developed, as right now it is either useless, or very annoying. I have been using knife tool quite a lot for creating shadows on illustrations by dividing the basic colour into 1-2 shapes (instead of drawing and it drove me crazy and I actually managed to use the pen tool to cut out shapes the same way, but then I don't see the point of knife tool being there. There is so much potential in this tool and I would love to use it, drawing with it like a pen or brush but instead of drawing it would cut. Right now it cuts so randomly just doesn't make sense at all! :( Even though I can manage to reach the same cut with pen tool, but it is more complicated then "drawing" the shape I need and voila it's already a cut there! Like what knives are supposed to do.. Please please let this tool grow to something really useful!
