    i made this design that i'm using for an airbrush mask. it's basically going to be a 1/4" pinstripe. when i take the first drawing and apply the outline contour tool it makes the points round...i've tried every setting there is and can't get them pointed...what am i doing wrong or what can i do to make the corners all sharp like the original?

    The lower part of the outline tab should have a button with an icon showing the type of corner that you would like to use if pressed more options are available.

    After you do the outline, use the square corner tool to edit it to be a sharp corner.

    2000, I re-read your posts and still don't see where you tried selecting the square corner option as opposed to the rounded corner option in the outline dialog. Just trying to save you the extra step. Good luck.
