3) Overview of Drawing tools
a) Freehand Tool
b) Rectangle Tool
c) Ellipse Tool
e) Polygon, Spiral & Graph Paper Tools Spiral- You can draw two types of spirals: symmetrical and logarithmic
4) Editing the object
~ Deleting, Moving, Scaling, Rotating & Skewing
~ Shape Tool - Used to give shape(curve) to a line.
~ Knife Tool - Used to cut an object from node to node
~ Erase Tool
~ Smudge Tool - Smudging lets you distort an object by dragging the outline of an object or a group of objects
~ Roughen Tool - The roughening effect lets you apply a jagged or spiked edge to objects (A generic term for any item you create or place in a drawing.Objects include line,shapes,graphic and text) , including lines, curves, and text
5) How to combine two lines
6) Learn to use Transformation (Mirror) of object and combine it -
Lets you rotate and create mirror images of objects.Mirroring an object flips it from left to right or top to bottom.
7) Learn to use Transformation (Rotation), to make a flower

~ Group -
When you group two or more objects, they are treated as a single unit.
~ Convert to curve -
Lets you shape objects by manipulating their nodes(The square point at each end of a line or curve segment) and segments(The line or curve between nodes in a curve objects)
~ Convert Outline to object
13) Edit Menu
Duplicate an object
~ Copy Properties From
14) View Menu
~ Simple Wireframe -
Simple wireframe — displays an outline of the drawing by hiding fills, extrusions, contours, drop shadows, and intermediate blend shapes; also displays the bitmaps in monochrome. It lets you quickly preview basic elements in a drawing.
~ Wireframe Wireframe —
displays simple wireframe in addition to intermediate blend shapes.
Normal — displays a drawing without PostScript fills or high-resolution bitmaps. Refreshes and opens slightly faster than enhanced view.
Enhanced — displays a drawing with PostScript fills, high-resolution bitmaps, and anti-aliased vector graphics.
15) Interactive Tool :-
~ Interactive Blending Tool -
Lets you create blends, such as straight-line blends, blends along a path((The basic components from which objects are constructed) , and compound blends.
~ Interactive Contour Tool -
You can contour (An effect created by adding evenly spaced concentric shapes inside or outside the borders of an object) an object to create a series of concentric lines that progress to the inside or outside of the object.
~ Interactive Distortion Tool
~ Interactive Envelope Tool -
It gives curve effects
~ Interactive Extrude Tool -
It gives 3D effect.
16) Interactive Extrude Tool
~ Interactive Drop Shadow -
Drop shadows simulate light falling on an object from one of five particular perspectives: flat, right, left, bottom, and top.
