Exploring on your own

Open a sample file from Adobe Illustrator CS2 to investigate and use some of the navigational and organization features learned in this lesson.

1.
Open the file named Yellowstone Map.ai in the Lesson01 folder.

2.
Perform the following on this artwork:

  • Practice zooming in and out. Notice that at the smaller zoom levels the text is “greeked,” appearing as though it is a solid gray bar. As you zoom in closer the text can be viewed more accurately.

  • Save zoomed in views using View > New View for different areas such as; Mammoth Springs, Tower-Roosevelt and Canyon Village.

  • Create a zoomed in view of Madison in the Outline View. Create a Preview view of the entire map.

  • Enlarge the Navigator palette and use it to scroll around the document and to zoom in and out.

  • Create a Saved workspace that shows only the toolbox, Control palette and Layers palette. Save it as map tools.

  • Use the Control palette to change the font and size of various text areas.
