The Petal tool lets you create flower petal shapes. Like the Leaf tool, it’s basically two line segments that both share the same endpoints but are stretched out by their Bezier points so that they don’t overlap exactly and look like one segment. After construction, you can use the Move Vertex and Move Bezier Point tools on it to adjust its shape if you want. During construction, the mark button

is used to define the axis of the Petal. You then drag to define the Bezier points. The easiest way to understand the usage is to just play around with it. Drag out the initial side, press the mark button, and then keep dragging. Here’s an example:

On construction you can also use the Drag Constraint button

to orient the petal horizontally, vertically, or along a vector. Like the Leaf tool, the Petal tool also has one other construction option: sharp end or round end. This determines whether the petal is “closed” at its initial point which will produce a rounded effect if the paint attributes allow it (if you’re using a rounded Join Style for instance). Under certain paint attribute settings, such as if you’re using a Stroke Style of FILL, you won’t notice a difference. See the Paint Attributes for more information.
