Performance-based objectives
  • Use the Tab Ruler palette, use smart punctuation, check spellings, find and replace text, link and unlink text blocks, and wrap text around an object.
  • Transform objects to modify their shape and colour attributes, use the Pathfinder buttons and commands to modify objects formed by the intersection of two or more objects, manage colours by applying blending modes and gradient meshes, create masks to hide and reveal areas of underlying artwork through specific shapes, and use the Liquify and Symbolism tools to modify images and work with symbols.
  • Discuss filters and effects, use the Colours filters to adjust, blend, and invert colours, use the Distort filters to pucker and bloat, roughen, scribble and tweak, and twist objects, use the Pen & Ink filters to apply hatch effects and create new hatch effects, convert shapes, add drop shadows, feather edges, and apply warp effects.
  • Convert vector graphics to raster images, modify the appearance of raster images, and create, edit, and remove envelopes.
  • Save files in EPS and PDF formats, link and embed images in Illustrator files, and export Illustrator files to other applications.
  • Create a hyperlink on an object in an artwork and save files for the Web.
  • Automate tasks by creating, recording, and playing actions, and modify actions by inserting nonrecordable commands, inserting stops, setting modal controls, excluding commands, and deleting actions.
