Understanding the Slicing and Cutting Tools

The Slicing tools are used in web page creation, to select and specify certain parts of the page to help with load times (see Figure 14.18). The Cutting tools—the Scissors tool and Knife tool—are used to break paths:

  • Slice tool: Click and drag to cut your artwork into separate elements for web display.

  • Slice Select tool: Click to select a specific slice you created.

  • Scissors tool: Click to cut a path at a specific point.

  • Knife tool: Click and drag to slice through objects or paths.
