Line and curve tools

Bug #253166 reported by Mirek2 on 2008-07-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

(This is a feature request.)
The pen tool is too clumsy to be usable. I propose adding a curve tool and a line tool - something like the tools present in Creature House Expression 3.


You might like to define what exactly "clumsey" is.

You might also like to describe how they are implemented in Creature House Expression 3, since this is unsupported software which is not easily (and definitely not legally) obtainable and even not native for e.g. Linux.

You might also like checking out unstable version of inkscape which has much improved Pen tool, including features (like Spiro curve mode) that Creature House Expression 3 is definitely missing.

P.S. To me Inkscape's pen tool is the best of what I've seen (AI, CD, Xara, Freehand etc.).

There is now a "lines only" mode in pen tool (in the developer version of Inkscape) which you may want to give a try and tell whether or not it fulfills your needs. Otherwise I agree with Alexandre that more precise descriptions would be very helpful.

Given the lack of follow-up on this issue, this bug report will be closed. As mentioned below a handful of enhancements have been made to the pen tool during this development cycle, and without more information about what you're specifically looking for, it's less likely that it will get implemented. If you feel this was closed in error, or wish to provide more information and potentially screenshots of what you're looking for, please feel free to re-open this bug report.
