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.
