Chapter 5. Different Strokes: Colors, Swatches, Fills, and Strokes

Chapter 5. Different Strokes: Colors, Swatches, Fills, and Strokes

Different Strokes colors, swatches, fills, and strokes

These are smokin’ tips. Literally, they’re hoodlum tips, standing on the street corner, smoking. Tips from the wrong side of town, that could easily lead astray all the other tips that are working so hard to stay on the straight and narrow. Ever heard Illustrator users talking about their preferences being corrupted and having to delete them? Do you think that just happens by accident? Oh no, my friend. Be very, very careful. Don’t get too close to these tricks or your life may never be the same. We understand the temptation—getting more work done in less time, it’s heady stuff. It may not seem like much of anything at first. You record an action to save yourself some time, but before you know it, you’re doing batch actions…and using keyboard shortcuts like there’s no tomorrow…and it all starts from associating with those bandana-wearing, rough-talking, good-for-nothing tips. Hey, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
