pattern swatch – a happy accident

Recommended Posts

I seem to have pasted an object using a pattern fill from AI into AD. Surprisingly, AD seems to support this just fine, and hasn't rasterised it or anything.

 

Having said that, I've been wracking my brain trying to work out if I can edit the pattern from within AD, or even create new ones. Coming up blank on that.

 

Any help? I've attached the file, you want to look at the bottom layer (Layer 2) and the related swatch is in the swatches palette.

Hi Dan, are you sure, that the fill does not get rasterised? Unfortunately it does not look like that … am I doing something wrong? Seems like a bitmap fill here … yes, the Fill Tool in Bitmap mode works on this. But as Matt said, true vector fills are “definitely coming” …

BTW Awesome design, Dan …  :)

Thanks... I guess it may be rasterised but it's happening at a resolution so high that it doesn't seem to matter. 

 

Having said that, I don't know how to do this as a raster fill either.

Hi Dan,

 

simply use the Fill Tool (Gradient Tool) and choose Bitmap from the context tool bar to create bitmap fills …  :)

 

Here’s a tutorial (watch from 3:33):

 

 

Hope that is informative … cheers, Alex  :)
