Tapered freehand lines with a mouse

Post by paccer » Sat Nov 30, 2019 7:42 pm

In Moho 13, how do I draw a tapered line using the Freehand tool, when using a mouse? I've tried various of the Freehand Options, but haven't achieved tapered lines.

Ugh! That features seems totally broken in Moho 13. Will let the developers know.

Personally, I don't bother with the Freehand tool. For me, it produces too many errors that need to be fixed and edited. Considering all that extra editing, I find drawing with the Add Points tool is more precise, efficient, and arguably faster. Especially when drawing for deforming puppet parts.

I would also add that you can use the Line Width tool (W) to taper lines/points after they have been created.
