Chapter 10. Color and Fills > Adding Patterns to Objects

Adding Patterns to Objects

Patterns can add interesting effects to your graphics. There are three types of pattern fills: 2-Color, Full Color, and Bitmap. As was the case with fountain fills, there are two ways to add a pattern to an object: with the Fill Tool (Pattern Fill Dialog) or Interactive Fill Tool.

To add a pattern fill to an object with the Pattern Fill Dialog:

1.
Select an object with a closed path.

2.
From the Fill Tool flyout in the toolbox, select the Pattern Fill Dialog (Figure 10.28).

Figure 10.28. Select the Pattern Fill Dialog from the toolbox.


The Pattern Fill dialog box appears (Figure 10.29).

Figure 10.29. Select a pattern type and a specific pattern from this dialog box.


3.
Select a pattern type by clicking one of the three radio buttons.

4.
Choose a pattern by clicking the down arrow beside the pattern box.

5.
Click OK.

The object fills with the selected pattern (Figure 10.30).

Figure 10.30. This is an example of a bitmap pattern created in the Pattern Fill dialog box.
