Today I worked on Lynda.Com Lessons. I rewatched the video I did yesterday. Today I will Start Chapter 6. I am on Lesson 1 of Chapter 6 Using the Direct Selection tool. I am working with the direct selection tool. You get the most control over your artwork by using the direct selection tool and control handles. I did 4 lessons on chapter 6 now moving on to lesson 5.
I have duplicated this image 3 by holding down the option key on the mac and the alt key on the pc and then drag as holding that down.
The ones in the square are all grouped now. You do that by clicking the lasso tool and drawing a circle or whatever shape you would need. Then you click object at the top of the screen and click group.
If you drag the control handle while holding the option key it breaks the link so you can adjust just what you want.
Moving the control handle in makes a dent in the shape because the control handle is linked to itself.
Selecting on one of the anchor points bring up all the control handles.
The anchor points show up after you select on the shape.
