To draw a curve in Pressuresensitive mode

1 Open the Curve flyout, and click the Natural Media tool.

2 Click the Pressure button on the Property Bar.

3 Click the Freehand Smoothing box and move the pop-up slider to select a smoothness setting.

Move the slider to the right for maximum smoothing; move the slider to the left for no smoothing.

4 Type a width in the Natural Media tool Width box on the Property Bar, then press ENTER.

The width you set here represents the curve's maximum width.

5 Position the cursor where you want the curve to start.

6 Drag to draw the curve.

• If you are using the mouse, press the Up Arrow or Down Arrow to vary the pen pressure. The Up Arrow increases the pressure effect, making the curve wider; the Down Arrow decreases this effect. To set the maximum width of the curve, type a value in the Natural Media tool Width box.
