Drawing parallel lines?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm currently working on a city map, and as part of making that map I'm drawing out the city's rail corridors, which often have multiple tracks.

Does anyone know if there is a way of taking the Line / Curve tool, and drawing parallel entities? It would really streamline the process and make it a lot easier.

Thanks!

It may not serve your purpose but when I need parallel lines I draw a white line with the Line tool and then use an Outline effect.

I also usually use the same method as @Eli .

Another way that sometimes works well in is to draw the first line on its own layer, copy the layer and then move the new layer with the Move tool.
