Chapter 29. Creating Blends > Adjusting Blend Paths

Adjusting Blend Paths

After you create a blend, you can change the path (spine) along which the intermediary objects were drawn. Illustrator always creates the blend along a straight path. You can edit that spine with the same tools you use to edit any other path. You can also replace it with another existing path.

Editing Spines

As with any path, the two basic types of editing involve moving anchor points and changing the curve of segments. When you move an anchor point, the appearance of the blend changes. How it changes depends, to a large degree, on the options with which the blend was created. As you can see in Figure 29.18, you can predict the results of editing spines based on the type of blend.
