Once the paths are connected, release the mouse button. The object will become selected. Then, you can proceed to copy or manipulate that particular area.
- 23With two anchor points selected, use the arrows on the keyboard to alter the shape."Lasso Tool" is good for selecting one or several anchor points of one object, because it gives you a lot of freedom to manipulate specific points.
