Review questions

1: Describe two methods for creating a gradient mesh.
A1: To create a gradient mesh, you select the gradient mesh tool and click an object; or you can select the object first, choose Object > Create Gradient Mesh, and specify the number of mesh lines and highlighting in the Create Gradient Mesh dialog box. Another way to create a gradient mesh is to select a gradient-filled object, choose Object > Expand, and select the Gradient Mesh option in the Expand dialog box to expand the gradient.
2: How do you change a color on the mesh?
A2: To change a color on the mesh, use the direct-selection tool or the gradient mesh tool to select the mesh point for the color, and then select a different color.
3: How do you add a mesh point to a mesh object? How do you add the mesh point without adding a color?
A3: To add a mesh point to a mesh object, click in a mesh patch or on a mesh line segment with the gradient mesh tool. (You can also add anchor points to mesh lines using the add-anchor-point tool.) To add the mesh point without adding a color, hold down Shift as you click.
4: How do you delete a mesh line?
A4: To delete a mesh line, select the gradient mesh tool, and Alt/Option-click a segment on the line.
5: Describe how to move a mesh point without affecting the intersecting line.
A5: To move a mesh point without affecting the intersecting line, use the gradient mesh tool to select the point without releasing the mouse button, and hold down Shift as you drag the mesh point.
6: How do you make a gradient mesh transparent?
A6: To make a gradient mesh transparent, select the gradient mesh object and change its opacity in the Transparency palette.
