Look for the Toolbar. If it`s deactivated go to Window > Toolbar
Pencil is there, activate it to get access to straighten/smooth
Excuse me. I'm sorry if this counts as necroposting or something--but I've run into a similar problem. Except, it's a bit stranger in my case. For some reason, my new files in Flash CS6, the pencil and line tools act strange. The pencil isn't smooth and the lines act like I'm on a weird grid or something. However, in my older files (from a day or two ago) the pencil and line tools work perfectly normal.
I imagine I somehow hit some kind of keyboard shortcut I didn't know of--which resulted in this dilema I've got going on here. I have compared the properties of my pencil tool from my older files, and my new files--and see no difference.
I have been using Flash since 2010--albeit in an amateur fashion--but still. In all these years, I've never once run into this problem before.
I recorded a quick clip showcasing the problem. I was in the middle of a serious project, and would like this to be resolved ASAP.
