Alternatively, double-click the "Scallop Tool" icon in the vertical toolbar to change the settings
A new window will appear, in which you can change "Width", "Height", "Angle" and "Intensity". You can change the "Scallop Tool" settings by clicking the up and down arrows and the drop-down menus or by typing values into the text boxes next to each parameter.
Alter the "Complexity" and "Detail" settings in the "Scallop Options"
All of the "Scallop Options" can have quite a dramatic effect on the shape, depending on the "Complexity" and "Detail" settings. For this tutorial, let's set "Complexity" to 15 and leave the default "Detail" setting of 2.
You can see that everything within the circle will be affected by "Scallop Tool". The settings applied create a very detailed scallop effect. It can be interesting to use this tool so that it encompasses the entire shape, which creates interesting shapes very quickly.
Alternatively, click the shape and hold the button. This will make the shape gradually pucker inwards. "Scallop Tool" is useful for creating dynamic shapes. After your changes have been made, the points on your shape become anchors, which can be manipulated in a number of different ways.
