NSL WEEK 189 – Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 “Selection Tools Overview”

Back to basics!!! This is a quick rundown of the Selection Tools in Adobe Illustrator.

Check out the video above to see the overview. I’ll show you what the tools do and then you get to see my workflow.


V = Selection Tool

A = Direct Selection Tool

While you have the direct selection tool activated, you can press the Alt/Option key to temporarily activate the Group Selection Tool

The main reason I looked into the selection tools was the Group Selection Tool… I had NO idea how it worked until this week. I thought I did. I thought it didn’t work right. Turns out it was ME! It didn’t make sense but after dome study time, I get it. Never Stop Learning right?
