CT&D #48. Illustrator Tools and Features

Adobe Illustrator gives users access to freehand drawing tools. How many selection tools are there and what are there names?

In Illustrator, the free hand tools include the pencil and paintbrush/blob tools. Technically, I would also consider the pen tool as well since you can manipulate the shape of its path unlike the shape tool which only can change in size (and not composition). Although the pen tool is usually used to produce areas of an image for precision, there is certainly an element of freehand drawing with regards to asymmetrical shapes since they do
not involve measuring. The selection tools are the normal selection, direct/group selections (under one button), magic wand and lasso tools, all located on the top of the right-most panel in Illustrator.
