If you are tired of all these various buttons and you just want to doodle, then click the Freehand tool (F) (which looks like pencil) and you can draw curves by dragging in the working area, as shown in Figure 9.2. The drawn line and its points appear as you draw if the Show Paths checkbox at the bottom edge of the working area is enabled. If the Show Paths checkbox is disabled, then nothing appears as you draw, but when you release the mouse button, the line appears. The number of points that are created depends on the Freehand options you have selected. The available options for this and all tools are shown in the Options bar located beneath the menus.
