Start with a Font

Stuck for a design idea, or searching for some clip art? Why not check out your built-in symbol fonts such as Webdings, Dingbats, etc.? Get the Type tool (T) and click-and-drag out a text box. Choose a font type and pick a large size. Open the Glyphs palette (Window>Type>Glyphs) and use this palette to pick the shape (letter) you want to use. Once you’ve found a design you like, double-click on it to add it to the text box. Then, select the symbol in the text box with the Selection tool and from the Type menu, choose Create Outlines (or press Command-Shift-O [PC: Control-Shift-O]). Use the Direct Selection tool (A) to edit and work with the object(s).
