Tips and Tricks in Illustrator CS4

Part of the Illustrator CS4 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Knowing a few tricks of the trade will help speed up your work when creating your masterpiece in Adobe Illustrator CS4. Be ready to use these Illustrator tips to make your work easier and save time:

  • Press X to toggle between Fill and Stroke, and Shift+X to swap fill and stroke colors.

  • Zoom in quickly by choosing a magnification zoom level from the lower left (look for “74%” on the image here).

  • An asterisk (*) in the Document tab means that the document has not been saved since you made changes.

  • Quickly get more screen real estate by clicking the double arrows at the top right of the stack of panels.

  • Pause the cursor over any Illustrator element (button, tool, panel, and so on) to see the name of that element.
