VectorScribe 2: How to Create and Edit Vector Graphics with Ease in Adobe Illustrator

Astute Graphics VectorScribe 2: A Powerful Plugin for Adobe Illustrator

If you are a graphic designer, illustrator, or vector artist, you probably use Adobe Illustrator as your main tool for creating stunning vector graphics. But did you know that you can enhance your workflow and productivity with a plugin that adds more features and functionality to Illustrator? In this article, we will introduce you to VectorScribe 2, a plugin from Astute Graphics that lets you create and edit vector shapes and paths with ease and precision.



What is VectorScribe 2?

VectorScribe 2 is a plugin for Adobe Illustrator that provides you with a set of tools to create and manipulate vector shapes and paths. It is compatible with Illustrator CS5, CS6, CC, CC 2014, CC 2015, CC 2017, CC 2018, CC 2019, CC 2020, and CC 2021. It is part of the Astute Graphics Plugins Bundle, which includes other plugins such as InkScribe, DynamicSketch, WidthScribe, Stylism, Phantasm, Texturino, MirrorMe, ColliderScribe, Autosaviour, DirectPrefs, and SubScribe.

VectorScribe 2 is designed to help you work faster and smarter with vectors. It allows you to create dynamic shapes that can be edited and transformed with intuitive controls. It also enables you to edit and simplify paths with advanced tools that give you more control and accuracy. Additionally, it offers you a way to measure and annotate your artwork with dynamic dimensions and labels.

Features and benefits of VectorScribe 2

VectorScribe 2 has many features that can improve your vector design process. Here are some of the main ones:

Dynamic shapes

With VectorScribe 2, you can create dynamic shapes that are more flexible and versatile than the standard shapes in Illustrator. You can choose from 14 different shape types, such as circle, ellipse, polygon, star, spiral, arc, pie, donut, cloud, rectangle, rounded rectangle, capsule, chamfered rectangle, and cogwheel. You can also convert any path into a dynamic shape.

Dynamic shapes can be edited and transformed with easy-to-use handles that let you adjust parameters such as radius, angle, number of sides or points, curvature, inset or outset, rotation, skewing, scaling, flipping, rounding corners, and more. You can also apply effects such as offset path or zigzag to dynamic shapes without expanding them.

Dynamic corners

With VectorScribe 2, you can add dynamic corners to any path or shape. Dynamic corners are corners that can be rounded or chamfered with variable radiuses. You can apply dynamic corners to one or more points on a path or shape using a simple click-and-drag method. You can also edit the radiuses of dynamic corners individually or collectively using numeric inputs or sliders.

Dynamic corners can be converted to standard corners or vice versa at any time. You can also preserve dynamic corners when scaling or rotating paths or shapes.


With VectorScribe 2, you can edit paths with more precision and flexibility using PathScribe. PathScribe is a tool that lets you manipulate paths by editing their anchor points and handles. You can access PathScribe by selecting a path and clicking on the PathScribe button on the VectorScribe panel.

With PathScribe, you can do things like:

  • Add or remove anchor points on a path

  • Move or align anchor points on a path

  • Convert anchor points from smooth to corner or vice versa

  • Edit the length or angle of handles on a path

  • Snap handles to grid or guides

  • Join or break paths at anchor points

  • Straighten or smooth paths

  • Cut paths at intersections

  • Merge overlapping paths

  • Clean up excess anchor points on a path

  • And more...
