When I was drawing some of the paths here with my Pencil tool, I made some of the paths here way too long and I want to be able to chop those things down. Now, of course, we know that we could use things like the Shape Builder tool later on. We don't need to lay down perfect paths right now. However, sometimes when you are sketching, you really want to make sure that things look at least a little bit closer to what your intentional design is. So I am going to zoom in on this part over here of Mister Zee where I kind of went a little bit too far with this path. So I am going to start by selecting the path itself and rather than deal with things like the Scissors tool to cut it, what I could do is I can use the same metaphor as the Pencil tool.
You notice that in the same location of the Pencil tool, in addition to this Move tool, I also have something called the Path Eraser tool. This is different than another tool here called the Eraser tool. This we are going to deal with a little bit later inside of the chapter, but for now we are now going to focus on this tool called the Path Eraser tool. So I am going to choose that option and with my Pen I am simply going to come over to the part of the path that I want to remove. If I just click over here and drag over this part of the path, it removes that part of the path. Granted, it's a little bit more difficult to use this because I kind of have to draw over that part of the path.
However, if I really want to delete a part of the path, I can use this tool, the Path Eraser tool, to do so.
