The plugin is controlled by two panels and a tool.

The panels can be opened by going to “Window → Extensions”.

  1. The Controls Panel allows to create:
  1. LTTR/INK Outline (the “Create Outline” button)
  2. dispose of it (“Clear Outline”)
  3. expand it (”Expand Stroke”)
  4. and edit selected Nib values.

The Stroke Styles Panel allows manipulation with stroke styles. This is a WORK IN PROGRESS.

Manipulate with strokes on the canvas.

To manipulate Nib dimensions you need to open LTTR/INK Tool

  1. Click on the three dots in the toolbar
  2. In the window, scroll down and find LTTR/INK icon
  3. Click on that icon to display and then click outside the toolbar
  4. You’ll see the ellipses display along the path

We prefer to keep the LTTR/INK Tool available in the Toolbar

  1. Find the icon in the extended toolbar panel
  2. Click and hold the icon and drag it to the Toolbar
  3. Click on the icon to activate the tool.
  4. Click on the canvas to activate the ellipses UI on the canvas.

Next step -> Start drawing
