I am trying to create what should be a simple line about 12 pt in width which starts as horizontal and then ascends through a smooth curve to a level about 1 " higher and then continies as a straight line again ( the stroke of the whole image should be constant.) I need a drop shadow in a different color to follow the bottom outline of the line. I just can't seem to get a smooth transition betrween the two straight lines. I would appreciate any help. Sorry if this is a dumb question.
Exactly - thank you. My problem is getting smooth curves between thre 2 straights.
Yep, Shift/Drag will get you there
