After drawing an object, you may find that you spend a lot of time tweaking the placement of multiple individual points. This can be time consuming, so if you need to move a lot of points at once, you’ll want to consider using the Magnet tool.
The Magnet tool (X) selects and moves all points within a defined radius, but the points nearest the center of the defined radius will move the greatest degree and points farther from the center move to a lesser extent, based on their distance from the center. The result is a smooth shifting of the selected points.
Using the Options bar, you can change the radius of the Magnet tool. Figure 11.15 shows the Magnet tool being used to modify the base of a guitar.
