The Extend Path Tool, released in October this year, recently has required a new function, which allows to continue a path along the spiral trajectory. Now the Smart Point Remove Brush has become more sensitive to the pressure on the pen of the graphic tablet. From now on you have an opportunity to select simultaneously all Dynamic Shapes with the help of the command in the Select menu. This upgrade is absolutely free for all the users of VectorScribe2.
