To draw a shape, select the pen tool from the Easel tool menu. Use your mouse to draw your desired shape, and click whenever you want to drop a point. Double-click a point to create an open shape or line. Click on an existing point to close the shape.
Don't forget to use tabs if you're cutting out a shape!
Easel’s alignment tools are the easiest way to ensure your project elements line up perfectly without any guesswork. These align options appear under the top toolbar after you select multiple shapes.combining multiple elements together into one element. To combine two or more shapes, hold Shift on your keyboard, and select the elements you want to combine. Click “Combine” in the Edit menu, and the shapes will become one. Now you can edit points, adjust depth, or make the shape an outline.
the point editor helps you fine-tune your project. Select an element and click “edit points” from the Cut/Shape menu. You can move points, round corners and convert the path between two points to be curved or straight.
Stacking design elements and setting different depths gives your project complexity. Darker shades indicate deeper carves, and lighter shades indicate little or no carving.
