Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing, part of Figma for UX Design.
- [Narrator] In the previous lesson,…you learned about creating and editing a few simple shapes.…In this video, I just wanna introduce you…to editing with the pen tool in Figma.…Now it's really similar to the ways,…pen tools work in other programs like Adobe Illustrator,…but it's got a few tricks up it's sleeve.…So let's take a look.…What we'll do, is we're gonna draw an icon,…another icon out here.…So, start out by selecting the rectangle tool…and let's draw a rectangle right here.…Just keep it kind of simple.…And we'll just create another rectangle.…
It's gonna go right on top and then we'll punch it out…just to make part of our shape.…So, click the rectangle tool again…and just make a little rectangle right here.…I'm gonna zoom in a little bit by pressing the plus key.…With that selected, go ahead and drag it.…And what you can do if you want to,…is use the smart guides to align things.…You can also select multiple objects…and use the alignment options right up here.…Select both objects, come up to the top…to the boolean operations.…
