    pen tool

    Hello,

    as a newbie in Illustrator this question must look top most of you as basic, but I can't get it.
    As I us my pentool, Illustrator is allways creating area's instead of a line.

    How do I get it to just draw a line?

    Welcome , Hank.

    You can use the pen tool to create your line. Click your starting point and click an end point. That's all. click the pointer tool to end the process. If you don't , clicking anywhere will create more anchor points.

    Or you could use the Line segment tool. Click on the document, drag where you want it and release. Repeating the process will create new lines.
