So the majority of these things I already knew from technical school so I’m putting things I haven’t learned which isn’t much. For instance like choosing the selection tool, going to Window > Transform, and setting up a size that way. That I didn’t remember.
Voice Lady is showing me this Reference Point. Clicking on the upper left hand corner or something will change the reference point. You can change the position
If you want to see the the ruler, press Command + R.
You can basically do as many shapes as you want so yeah.
*in child-like tone* Look! Voice Lady has a fish puzzle! WWWEEEEEEEEE! 😀
I have an idea where this is going IDK if I should stop now & start getting ideas for my book cover project. Oh look apparently you can drag multiple items by clicking 1 piece & shift clicking others. You can also do this by selecting the selection tool, clicking on the pieces to move, to deselect some some you shift click.
Go to your selection tool, click & drag over the fins, go to Object > Group. Clicking off the deselect & reselecting the fins again will still haven the fins together. To take 1 single fin go to the selection tool and choose deselect. Clicking that item again will have the group of fins again.
Imma go make my book now! 🙂
Review: Things to Remember
- The Direct Selection tool allows you to select an individual anchor point or path segment.
- Hold down the Shift key to constrain a shape to equal width & height.
- You can enter values for shapes by doing either the following:
- Select a Shape tool & click once on the artboard. This opens the shape options dialong box, in which you can enter width & height values.
- After a shape has been created, choose Windows > Transform & enter values into the Width & Height test fields.
