NSL WEEK 259- Adobe Illustrator “Live Shapes Update”

We got a new update for Adobe Illustrator CC!

I wanted to update a post from week 155 “Live Shapes”.

****

Adobe Illustrator Creative Cloud

In the Transform Panel on the upper right, you can see the Ellipse Properties. That’s where all the action is! You’re able to make precise adjustments now that these shapes are “live”.

You can also make adjustments to the shape directly while getting information on your new shape.

New option for ellipse is to create these open pie shapes.

Now that I have the polygon selected, I have access to the Polygon Properties in the Transform Panel.

In addition to the Transform Panel, you can round your corners by clicking and dragging directly on the annotations you see on your shape.

There’s an additional handle on the bounding box that allows you to add or subtract sides from the shape.
