AD: How to create repeated patterns with svgs?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a repeated background pattern with svgs. I have found patterns here: http://www.heropatterns.com/ But these are CSS ready - I get the CSS code. When I download the file, I get a svg file with one repeat. How do I recreate the pattern in AD? 



I have tried to use Symbols to save the svg as a symbol, and then cntr+J to repeat it across the page. But since the svg is small, it seem very laborious. Is there a different way? What if I don't want the tiles to be exactly against each other but have some margin on each side?


Thank you.

Hi Zk433,

If you press Alt and the drag the svg you can then have a margin for when you power duplicate, once you have finished a row you can the do the same to duplicate the rows and in this way you can quickly fill the document as shown in this tutorial.
