    pen tool

    shonts Level 1
      Hello sorry for such a lame post but I am new to to FW and have been trying to trace a shape for the past hour with a pen tool. Is there a way to lock completed portions of a drawing? Half way through i keep distortoing what i have laready done. i have googled this but not found an answer to this (but have found many useful tips) and I can not hear flash content on my new intel mac so can't access the online tutorials.

      any help apprecitated!

          Just remember to stitch around the shape just like you would when
          marquee marking. Don't drag. Holding down the Alt key in Windows will
          prevent dragging.
