Part: X Appendixes > Working with Illustrator's Palettes

Working with Illustrator's Palettes

When you first open the program, Illustrator presents you with 15 palettes, which include the Toolbox and 14 tabs on four floating windows. Another seven palettes remain hidden until opened with a menu command or keyboard shortcut. You can drag the tabs from palette to palette or drag them to form an individual palette. When palettes' tabs occupy the same row in a window, they are said to be grouped. In Figure D.1, note that more than one group can be within the same window, a process called docking, which will be explained next.

Figure D.1. Illustrator's default palette arrangement. The Transparency, Stroke, and Gradient tabs are grouped to gether, and that group is actually part of the same window as the group made up of the Color and Attributes tabs. The first group is docked to the palettes above it.
