I'm very familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. What I'm trying to do, though, is create a map. I can work with the pen tool like nobody's business, but I can't seem to figure out a way to do the following without it being extremely tedious:
1) Roads. I want roads. Do I need to draw the roads as a rectangle and carefully build them out that way, or is there a way to just draw a path, then tell it to make that path X pixels thick in Y colour, with this stroke, etc?
2) Dotted lines. This seems like a no brainer but I can't get it going. Is there a way to do dotted lines similar to the above, or am I forced to create a path and then add a text layer to that path with a bunch of dashes?
