Path smoothing and path pushing
The ability to smooth sections of a path after it’s drawn is a key feature. Also the ability to use a ‘variable size brush’ beside a path to push sections of a path. The app ‘concept’ is still more valuable to me as a vector tool as far as features go.

Pencil tool options - like on desktop illustrator
Would be lovely to have more control of the pencil tool. I simply tried doing my signature and it was getting all distorted because the points were connecting wherever they pleased... impossible getting line right when working on smaller details. Pencil Tool would be extremely helpful to have for future work. Thank you kindly.227 votes28 comments · Tools · Admin →
