The Bind tool binds together a collection of paths into a single unit which you can then operate on as a whole. You can Move the whole collection, Flip it, or perform any other transformation on it. The paths can be bound together using either a rectangle or a circle by toggling the first Option Button. The Layer Bind option button determines if a normal bind is performed or a layer bind.

Flower Path (center first or path first)

The Flower tools (there are two of them) let you “flower” a path around a point. That center point may or may not be on the path itself. A Flower Path is actually a Bind Path created by making multiple copies of an existing path and then rotating them around a center point to evenly spaced positions. The original path becomes part of the Flower Path. There are two ways (and two tools) to construct a Flower Path: By selecting the path to be flowered first and then selecting the center By selecting the center first and then the path. [Read More]

Layer Bind Toggle

The Layer Bind Toggle tool works only on Bind paths and Flower paths (which are actually themselves a kind of Bind path). It allows you to change the layer rendering behavior of the Bind path after the path has already been constructed. When you construct a Bind path you have the option of rendering it using layer binding. If you change your mind later, you could use this tool rather than unbinding the path and redoing the binding.

Mark Bind

The Mark Bind tool is a more precise version of the Bind tool. It allows you to select a collection of paths one at a time to be added to a single bound path. After you’ve initiated the binding by touching anywhere on the screen, drag your finger to a Snapping Point of a path and press the Mark Button. The path will be added to the bound collection. Continue this process until you’ve collected all the paths that you wish to bind together. [Read More]


The UnBind tool works on Bind paths and Flower paths (which are actually themselves a kind of Bind path). What it does is sever the connections between the bound paths so that they can again be manipulated independently. There is one important point to keep in mind though. When unbinding you have two options: Breakdown to Next Bind Level Breakdown To Elementary Paths The first option, “Breakdown to Next Bind Level”, will only affect Bind paths that themselves contains other Bind paths.
