Chapter 25. Illustrator Actions > Creating a New Action

Creating a New Action

Before you construct an action anew, you should give some thought to what kind of action you want to make. Illustrator lets you create two types of actions: the construction action and the modifying action.

The construction action is a self-contained action that creates objects from scratch and requires nothing of you except your desire to use the action. Construction actions are useful when you want to create the exact same object over and over (for example, if you always need a rounded rectangle at a certain size). But construction actions limit you to exactly the same object each time.
