5- Smooth Tool :

This tool smoothes an object's path when you drag it across an object's outline. When possible, the tool reduces and simplifies the shape and number of nodes found in the path in order to smooth it out.

18- Freehand Tool (F5) :

This curve tool allows you to draw lines, curves, and shapes freely without thinking about where to place nodes or the angles of curves. You can draw segments of lines and objects, connect to open nodes, and close objects quickly and easily with this tool as well.

19- 2-Point Line Tool :

This tool allows you to draw straight lines between two points by dragging from one point to another. Lines can be drawn either straight, perpendicular, or at a tangent to other objects depending on which option is chosen in the Property bar.

20- Bezier Tool :

21- Pen Tool :

This curve tool allows you to place nodes to draw straight lines and curves. Unlike the Bezier tool, it lets you preview curves and lines as they're being placed and drawn, giving you greater control when creating lines and objects.

22- B-Spline tool :

Draw curved lines by setting control points that shape the curve without breaking it into segments.

23- Polyline tool :

Draw connected curves and straight lines in one continuous action.

24- 3-Point Curve Tool :

A drawing tool that allows you to create a curved line by first defining the length of the line and then defining the curve of that line. The third point is the center point of the curve, which you can manipulate and preview while drawing the line.

25- Smart Drawing Tool (Shift-S) :

This curve tool converts paths drawn into either smoothed out paths or basic shapes. Ellipses, polygons, and rectangles can all be created with this predictive, smart drawing tool. This tool works especially well with pressure-enabled graphic tablets.

26- LiveSketch tool :

The LiveSketch tool lets you sketch naturally with intelligent stroke adjustment.

27- Artistic media tool :

The Artistic media tool provides access to the Preset, Brush, Sprayer, Calligraphic, and Expression tools.

28- Rectangle tool :

The Rectangle tool lets you draw rectangles and squares.

29- 3-Point Rectangle Tool :

A shape tool that creates rectangles and squares by defining the width of the shape and building the ellipse outward from that line. It starts in a way that's similar to the 2-Point Line, but once the line is drawn you create a rectangle or square.

30- Ellipse tool :

The Ellipse tool lets you draw ellipses and circles.

31- 3-Point Ellipse Tool :

A shape tool that creates ellipses and circles by defining the diameter of the shape and building the ellipse outward from that line. It starts in a way that's similar to the 2-Point Line, but once the line is drawn you create an ellipse or circle.

32- Polygon tool :

The Polygon tool lets you draw symmetrical polygons and stars.

33- Star tool :

The Star tool lets you draw perfect stars.

34- Complex star tool :

The Complex star tool lets you draw complex stars that have intersecting sides.

35- Graph Paper Tool (D) :

This tool creates grids of complete and closed shapes according to the settings implemented in the Property Bar

36- Spiral Tool (A) :

This shape tool allows you to draw symmetrical and logarithmic spiral objects within your document.

37- Basic Shapes tool :

The basic set of perfect shapes containing a variety of geometric shapes ready for manipulation with the Pick and Shape tools, as well as special nodes that change a variety of features unique to each object.

38- Arrow Shapes tool :

A variety of perfect arrow shapes ready for use within your document and easily modified with the Shape and Pick tools and assorted dockers.

39- Flowchart Shapes tool :

These perfect shapes are fantastic for use within flowcharts and, as objects, have special nodes that you can manipulate with the Shape tool in order to edit the shape in a unique way.

40- Banner shapes tool :

The Banner shapes tool lets you draw ribbon objects and explosion shapes.

41- Callout shapes tool :

This is an assortment of Perfect Shapes ready for use within a document as preset objects that can be modified with the Shape and Pick tools, as well as their individual special nodes that change specific components of each Perfect Shape

49- Straight-line connector tool :

The Straight-line connector tool lets you draw a straight connector line.

50- Right-Angle Connector Tool :

The Contour tool lets you apply a contour to an object.

55- Blend :

This docker offers additional control to the user when creating blends with the Blend tool. Control the number of steps, acceleration, and style of color blend.

56- Distort tool :

The lets you apply a Push or Pull distortion, a Zipper distortion, or a Twister distortion to an object.

57- Envelope Tool :

This tool allows you to change the shape of an object by manipulating nodes surrounding the object in an envelope or bounding box instead of the object's nodes themselves.

58- Extrude tool :

The lets you apply the illusion of depth to objects.

59- Transparency tool :

The lets you apply transparencies to objects.

60- Color eyedropper tool :
