Chapter 14. FILLS > Working with Pattern Fills

Working with Pattern Fills

Pattern fills are bitmapped patterns that can be edited pixel by pixel. (See Appendix B for a printout of the default pattern fills.)

To apply a Pattern fill:

1.
Select an object and choose Pattern from the Fill inspector pop-up menu.

2.
Use the slider bar to choose one of the Pattern fills from the series of small boxes 51.

Figure 51. The Pattern fill settings in the Fill inspector.


3.
Use the large preview box on the left to edit the pattern by clicking on each of the pixels. The large preview box on the right shows what your pattern will look like when applied to the object.

4.
Use the Clear button to delete all the dark pixels from the large preview boxes to editing a pattern again.

5.
Use the Invert button to change the black pixels into white and vice versa.

TIP

Objects behind Pattern fills are not visible through the white spaces of the fills.

6.
Use the color drop box to apply any color to the dark pixels of a pattern.
