Transform each fill and stroke independently in a shape with several fills and strokes

Recommended Posts

I am really happy with the new appearance panel and the possibility to have numerous fills and strokes for a single shape. Could we also get a transform effect that can be applied to each fill or stroke. It does not need to be an effect, but the possibility to transform each fill  and stroke independently from the others.

Equally useful would be the possibility to apply different effects to different fills and strokes

I second this suggestion. This is much needed for things like pseudo 3d text effects where fills can be offset to create a shadow/extrusion. This would also allow for the text itself to be edited easily at a later time without having to redraw anything.

For reference, here is an example of what could be achieved with a transform fill feature  (I know - sorry for referencing Adobe here :7_sweat_smile: ):

Currently there is no option for adding FX to the Appearance panel.  That alone would be a great addition (being able to add layer FX to the appearance panel items the way you can add them to layers), but I also agree that the transform effect would be nice to have, not only for the appearance but for layers as well.

OTOH, if one needs or wants to create an object that consists of several fills and strokes plus layer effects it could be done with independent layers. It's a workaround but would work right out of the box.

It might be harder to edit afterwards, though. It really depends on the design.
