The Blend Tool in Adobe Illustrator is probably the oldest Live Effect but a very POWERFUL tool.
There’s so many uses and workflows with this tool that I’m going to be returning to it several times in the future. This time I wanted to focus on the basic blend tool options and some important keyboard shortcuts that can help speed things up.
The coolest thing I learned was the shortcut for creating a blend:
Comm + Option + B
While you have the Blend Tool activated, you can hit the Return/Enter key and that will bring up the Blend Options
