Scrubby Sliders

You may first be asking, “What the heck is a scrubby slider?” A scrubby slider is a newer way to adjust settings in dialogs and palettes without using the keyboard. To see what we mean try this: Apply a Halftone Pattern effect to an object in Illustrator (Effect>Sketch>Halftone Pattern). When the dialog opens, position your cursor over the word Size in the settings on the right. Note the little arrows that appear as the cursor. This is a scrubby slider. You can move your mouse to the left or to the right to adjust the setting without ever touching your keyboard. Note that not all settings in Illustrator have been updated with this ability.
