Using the pen tool, I can't imagine why anyone would want the following line segment to go in the ( random ? ) angle it chooses for you when making a new anchor point.
After making every line, I tediously have to go back and close the bezier by clicking on my point again to make the next line start a "fresh angle".
Is there any way to make every line do that?
I know holding the option key will give you one extra line that is clear.
I've also heard of the technique where just plot all your lines, and then go back and adjust the beziers, but that requires two clicks per dot.
