The Secret of the "~" Key

The Secret of the "~" Key!⁣

Did you try to use the "~" key in Adobe Illustrator?

Apparently - it is a very awesome quick repetition shortcut that you can use to make plants for example.

How to use it?

start drawing with the Line or Arc tool and hold the "~" down all the time. ⁣You'll notice that the lines have a certain repetition mode.
