    Pen Tool Problems

    I am trying to use the anchor point tool, which I was using just fine the last time I worked, but now it is not allowing me to use it. The cursor is the standard arrow when over the photo, and only allows me to draw a perforated says on the top that there are no options for the add anchor point tool....How can I get through this and be able to use the anchor point tool again? I have no idea what I did....

    sorry, I am trying to teach myself and sometimes get caught up in easy-to-fix problems...I just dont know how

    all help is appreciated.

    Re: Pen Tool Problems

    It sounds like you have the Convert Point Tool, not the Pen tool. Click and hold down on the tool icon in the tool pallet and you will see there are more options under there. Select the Pen tool and you should be on your way.
