Hi Friends,

Using pen tool I have to press Alt + click again at the node while drawing to create a cusp node.

My method is - Select Pen tool - left click for first node and drag to achieve desired curved segment - release mouse button - press again left click for second node at desired position and drag control handle to create desired curve - then Alt click at second node for cusp node - continue in this fashion for rest of the curved segments as shown in my example.

Is it possible to draw and edit control points for a cusp, smooth or symmetric node simultaneously in a single stretch while drawing curved segments with the help of some other shortkey combinations but without pressing again S for smooth/symmetric or Alt click node for a cusp or F10 for edit later?

Thanks,

I don't use pen tool when shaping in CorelDraw, so I can't help you with your problem.....

I find it is easier to control the shape using this method (especially freestyle drawing)...maybe you should try it yourself.

The bezier tool is the best when it comes to drawings. It gives you the flexibility of precise nodes and curves using the node conversion tools. I usually place guides on the page and use those to define my bezier points and node adjustments.
