Chapter 2. The Interface > The Illustrator Desktop

The Illustrator Desktop

After the splash screen goes away, you will see the onscreen elements. Illustrator 10 does not automatically create a new illustration window. You have to choose the New command from the File menu and make a few decisions about the document. This may add a few seconds to your projects, so make sure you budget your time accordingly.

If you've been working on the Windows or Mac system for any amount of time, you're probably familiar with the basic desktop elements labeled in Figures 2.1 (Windows) and 2.2 (Mac). If you're new to the world of computing or new to Illustrator, go ahead and read the descriptions. (Labeled items from the figures appear in italic type.)
