- 7We click and drag the pointer.The outline will appear. We can move it around to manipulate how the shape will look. Some guides will appear, as the green line will indicate it. This happens owing to the smart guides being enabled. We can move the shape quite a lot. We can decide whether it is going to be a rectangle or a square.
- 11We press and hold "Shift" and "Alt" keys on the keyboard.The a perfect square shape will go from the central point instead of the corner point, as it was before. Sometimes, pressing "Shift", "Alt", and mouse buttons can get tricky as we use a lot of fingers in one go. It takes some practice to get the hang of it.
- 13We can press arrow keys on the keyboard.We will see the rectangle move. Of course, it's something with which it's worth experimenting. This tutorial applies to every shape, whether more complicated or not. It's also useful to know the keyboard shortcuts such as "Shift", "Alt", space, and directional arrows. We have to practice with the keyboard shortcuts. because this will save us a lot of time in the future.Advertisement
