Now, I think I need a doorknob on this door. So, that will give us a great excuse to use our oval tool. So, zoom in and make a doorknob. My doorknob color should be blue. I think I will stick with the brown stroke on the outside and of course, I am going to use my oval tool. Now, I am going to take this opportunity to play around with the oval tool just a little bit. And, we are going to talk about some settings that are actually common to both the rectangle tool and the oval tool. These two tools work very similarly except one makes ovals and one makes rectangles. When using the oval tool or the rectangle tool, if you start drawing from the upper left corner and you drag down to the lower corner or I guess if you are dragging it up, you drag up. But you are kind of drawing from one corner to another.
Now, you can modify that behavior of both tools with a little keyboard shortcut. If you hold down the alt key or the option key on the Macintosh, you will notice that you changed the drawing from corner to corner. So you are drawing from the center out. It is still using the original location I clicked with the tool but now, I am drawing from the center out. Now, that could be helpful in our specific case right here because I might be thinking the doorknob should be centered right there instead of the doorknob’s corner should be right over here. So you can reconfigure the tool to draw from the center out. Now in addition to that change, this is also fairly common amongst most tools, you notice that if I just drag with the oval tool, I am getting all kinds of stretched and tall ovals and everything in between. But if I hold down the shift key while I am doing this, I will get just circles so it will constrain me to a simple circle. Now this works the exact same way for the rectangle tool. Only, I am going to get a square instead of a rectangle. So let us see here. I want to draw from the center for my doorknob. I really do not want a circle. I want kind of an oval so I am going to leave it like that.
