The Cloud tool allows you to create shapes and outlines with an arbitrary number of sides on the document. The cloud is essentially a Cloud with a default line style using a cloud shape. Hold the Shift key while drawing to make horizontal, vertical, or 45 degree angle lines. Once placed shapes can be modified by dragging any of the resize handles on the vertices of the shape.
