    Simple drawing question

    Is there a way to just add a point to a vector line/shape. For instance you draw a line and can move point a and b with the white arrow tool. What if I wanted to also put in points c and d in the middle of that line?

    If the line is curved, you can add points by clicking on the line with the pen tool. If the line is straight, you have to convert it to a curve before it will accept new points. You can bend the line with the regular selection tool (solid arrow).

    You're welcome. You can turn the curved segments back into straights by selecting them with the arrow tool and clicking on the "Straighten" icon in the "Options" area at the bottom of the toolbar.
