Illustrator Tools

One of the most crucial aspects of this is that we can activate these tools by using keyboard shortcuts.

Select the tool

  •  Paint tool

Alive paint buckets and live paint selection tools are part of the Paint tool. The gradient tool shows color tones and may be used to combine two or more colors. Similarly, it contains a live paint bucket that allows you to mix colors.

  • Modify Tool

The program must modify existing objects without altering the original item. We may rotate, mirror, scale, reshape, tweak the width and height, and warp it here.

My favorite tool is a Twirl tool; the longer we hold our click, the more twirl we see. Repeating this twirl creates more intricate forms. It may be used on the circle’s boundaries, and its parameters can be changed by double-clicking it.
A Warp tool can deflate an item by adjusting its points. Use the Pucker tool to squish everything towards the center.

  • Navigate Tool

Here is the navigation tool, which is utilized every minute. If we modify the design, we must zoom in and out of the graphic to observe the effect. We need a hand tool for panning items while adding effects or colors. We may access these tools by pressing “H” and “Z” constantly.

  • Artboard Tool

The tool is the platform for the printed part or the exportable item. We may pick from a variety of preset sizes or create our own bespoke artboard. It’s possible to construct a seamless artboard for a single document and position it wherever on the screen.
To use this tool, we must first open it and then drag & drop things inside it. It indicates the maximum printing area of each artboard. In this case, the canvas is a 220-inch square window outside the artboard.

  • Layers Panel

Layers are often used in picture editing software to replicate an image or graphic. Using this technique, we can preserve the original copy. If we don’t like the modifications made, we may simply delete the layer and start again.

The layer may also be used to conceal, lock, and store the look. We can even develop a layered template to monitor artwork and share layers with other programs like Photoshop.
Adobe Illustrator usually allocates a unique color to each layer, up to nine in total. The same color is mirrored in the box’s window, path, anchor points, and object’s center.

The graphic below shows how the layers are formed and named. The four columns are titled as follows:

  • Visibility Column 
  • Zip column 
  • selection Clicking on the traits controls them.
