Chapter 1. Basic Training: Basic Tips Yo... > Edit Existing Patterns and Symbols

Edit Existing Patterns and Symbols

If you see a pattern in the Swatches palette (Window>Swatches) or symbol in the Symbols palette (Window>Symbols) that you’d like to adapt by changing colors or by adding or deleting objects, drag the swatch or symbol onto the artboard. Patterns are editable, but with symbols you’ll have to choose Object>Expand to be able to edit the original artwork. Once you’ve made your changes (using the Direct Selection tool, most likely), select the objects and drag them back into their appropriate palettes, which creates a new pattern or symbol.
