Using Basic Shape Tools

In this lesson, you’ll create a simple logo using the basic shape tools. The shape tools are organized in two groups in the toolbox, under the ellipse and Rectangle tools. You can tear these groups off the toolbox to display in their own palettes.

  1. Hold down the mouse button on the Rectangle tool (rectagle.jpg) until a group of tools appears, and then drag to the tear-off triangle at the end and release the mouse button.
  2. Move the Rectangle tool group away from the toolbox.
