NSL WEEK 253- Adobe Illustrator “Convert To Shape Rounded Rectangle”

A couple weeks back (NSL 249) I showed a technical workflow for Convert To Shape.

This week I want to show a more common use for the Convert To Shape Live Effect and focus on the importance of the Appearance Panel. 


You can find this Live Effect by going into the Effect menu, choose Convert To Shape and then choose your shape. In the video above I went with Rounded Rectangle.


The great thing about this workflow is that everything is Live! That means you can reuse elements and then make some quick edits. As I change the text in the rectangle, the rectangle will update with me. Please check out the video for the whole story.
