    Default Flash Pen Tool (opinions)...

    Just wanted to ask what are the opinions of you all that use Flash in the Pen Tool? I've been trying to figure out how it works for ages, finally I quit trying and instead when I wanna make smooth curves I'll just draw straight lines and curve them with the arrow tool, but still I wonder, is the Pen Tool that helpful? do you use it much often? and if you can how did you finally master it?

    I'm learning in Flash MX 2004 btw...

    I tend to draw a straight line with the pen tool and bend it to the shape I want

    Here's the key - use the (a) key to go into point edit mode.

    then you can use the tangent line to get the line going the way you want it. It works best if you have a stylus.
