Review answers

1The Appearance palette contains the following types of editable attributes:
  • Fill attributes (fill type, color, transparency, and effects).

  • Stroke attributes (stroke type, brush, color transparency, and effects).

  • Transparency attributes (opacity and blending mode).

  • Effects from the Effect menu.

2From the Appearance palette menu, choose Add New Stroke. A stroke is added to the top of the appearance list. It has the same color and stroke weight as the original stroke.
3Many commands in the Effect menu also appear in the Filter menu, but only the Effect menu commands are live and fully editable.
4To edit an effect, double-click its name in the Appearance palette. This displays the effect’s dialog box. You can then make changes. Click OK to update the effect in the artwork.
5Once a Graphic Style is applied to a layer, everything you add to that layer will have that style applied to it. For example, if you create a circle on Layer 1 and then move it to Layer 2, which has a Drop Shadow effect applied, the circle would adopt that effect. When a style is applied to a single object, nothing else on that object’s layer is affected by the object’s style. For example, if a triangle has a Roughen effect applied to its path, and you move it to another layer, it will still retain the Roughen effect.
6In the Layers palette, click the target indicator of a layer. Drag the appearance indicator down to the Trash icon in the Layers palette to remove the appearance. You can also remove the appearance of a selected object or layer by using the Appearance palette. Select the object and click the Reduce to Basic Appearance button to return the object to its original state before the appearance attribute or style was applied.
7You change the resolution in the Rasterize Effects Settings dialog box. Choose Effect > Document Raster Effects Settings. Change the Resolution setting to Low (72 ppi), Medium (150 ppi), High (300 ppi), or Other. Click OK.
