creating vector paths

I am starting to learn how the vektor tools work in animate.

But I wonder if there is a similar tool to the one in illustrator where you can add a point at a time and close it. Sometimes when you are used to that function in making a solid in illustrator it´s easier to to that besides drawing and editing because there are often to many points added.

Have you tried the “Line Pushing Mode” in the tool properties for the pencil?

It’s not exactly what you’re asking for but it is a tool that lets you sculpt the lines. Combined with pulling the shape and adding control points you should be able to create a very simple shape (dot or line segment) and then work in the way tou are used to from there.

I think the best way is to start with a square or something similar and then build with more points and change them.
Works fine.

yep, toon boom different from the AI software.
but I have a solution:
look at screenshot, please:

To add control points, press [Ctrl] (Windows) or [⌘] (Mac OS X) and click the line.

But you can´t start to add a point from scratch and build a shape like in illustrator?

OK I think I understand what you want now. I have not seen anything like that in this software. Maybe someone else will respond acknowledging whether this capability exists. Also try Support.
