Adobe illustrator cs4- P20: Good designers have many tools at their disposal. Especially in an environment where most designers have other powerful graphics applications, it can be diffi cult to choose which one to use for a particular task. For example, a designer can apply soft drop shadows in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign—is one application any better than the others for this?

  1. 544 APPENDIX: APPLICATION PREFERENCES Identify Objects By. Illustrator has the ability to generate templates with XML-based variables, which are useful for generating graphics files auto- matically using scripts or the Adobe Graphics Server (a separate server-based product). Some of these templates require that all variables be defined using valid XML names. By default, Illustrator uses the object name to define vari- ables, but you can specify that Illustrator should use valid XML IDs instead. Display Performance. Do you have an ancient video card in your com- puter? Or are your files so complex that even the fastest of computers begs for mercy when trying to redraw your screen? The Hand Tool slider allows you to dial in the performance you need when scrolling with the Hand tool. With the slider closer to Full Quality, your graphics will look better while scrolling, at the expense of a slower redraw. You can drag your slider toward Faster Updates for better performance, but you won’t get great-looking art until you let go of the mouse button after scrolling. THE GUIDES & GRID PANEL Illustrator allows you to define guides, which you drag out from either the horizontal ruler or the vertical ruler (View > Show Rulers). These guides act like magnets, helping you draw or position elements on your page. In reality, you can turn any vector shape into a guide by selecting it and choosing View > Guides > Make Guides. Additionally, Illustrator has a grid feature that makes your artboard appear almost as if it were a sheet of graph paper. Objects can snap to this grid, making it easy to visually align items in a layout. You set the appearance of guides and the grid using the Guides & Grid panel in Preferences (Figure A.5). Some people prefer solid lines for guides, whereas others prefer dotted lines. You can also choose the color used for the guides. Additionally, you can set the number of grid lines and subdivi- sions that appear in the grid. For example, a web designer might specify a grid line at every 10 pixels with 10 subdivisions, which would make it pos- sible to zoom in and view artwork on a pixel-by-pixel basis.
  2. THE SMART GUIDES PANEL 545 Figure A.5 The Guides & Grid panel in Preferences lets you change the color and appearance of grid lines. THE SMART GUIDES PANEL In addition to normal guides, Illustrator has a useful feature called smart guides; these guides offer a variety of pointer feedback options while you work. You can activate this feature by choosing View > Smart Guides. The Smart Guides panel allow you to control the behavior of this feature (Figure A.6). Figure A.6 The Smart Guides panel controls the settings for the useful smart guides feature.
  3. 546 APPENDIX: APPLICATION PREFERENCES Aside from choosing the color in which smart guides appear, the Display Options section of the Smart Guides preferences panel lets you enable or disable any of the six kinds of smart guides. Alignment Guides. Alignment guides appear when you move your cursor; they help you align objects in context while drawing, moving, or editing objects. In this way, you don’t have to perform additional align functions. Object Highlighting. Object highlighting identifies the underlying Bézier paths or original text or artwork when you mouse over objects that have live effects or envelopes applied to them. Transform Tools. Transform tools are guides that appear when using any of transform functions in Illustrator, such as Rotate or Scale. Construction Guides. Construction guides appear as you’re drawing new shapes and identifying similar planes or angles with other objects. You can specify which angles are identified using the pop-up list, or you can choose Custom Angles and specify up to six custom angles. Anchor/Path Labels. Anchor/path labels identify anchor points and paths as you mouse over them. Measurement Labels. Measurement labels help you identify the dimen- sions of objects as you draw them. The Snapping Tolerance setting at the bottom of the panel allows you to specify how close your cursor needs to be to an object for smart guides to kick in. Smart guides are covered in detail in Chapter 1, “Creating and Managing Documents.” THE SLICES PANEL When creating art for the web, you can use web slicing to assist in optimiz- ing your images. The Slices panel offers settings for how the slice regions are displayed on your screen (Figure A.7). In Preferences, you can define how these slices are indicated on the Illustrator artboard.
  4. THE HYPHENATION PANEL 547 Figure A.7 The Slices preferences panel. THE HYPHENATION PANEL Straightforward in its implementation, the Hyphenation panel in Preferences allows you to choose the default language (which you can override by using the pop-up list in the Character panel) and hyphenation exceptions; it also allows you to add new words to the dictionary (Figure A.8). Figure A.8 The Hyphenation panel in Preferences lets you add new words to the diction- ary in Illustrator for better hyphenation.
  5. 548 APPENDIX: APPLICATION PREFERENCES THE PLUG-INS & SCR ATCH DISKS PANEL From an architectural standpoint, Illustrator has a core engine, and the rest of the application is built using plug-ins, which are stored in the Plug-ins folder. Additionally, third-party plug-ins such as MAPublisher and CAD- tools are stored in this folder. The Additional Plug-ins Folder preference allows you to also specify additional folders where plug-ins might be stored (Figure A.9). Figure A.9 The Plug-ins & Scratch Disks panel in Preferences lets you specify multiple disks for memory- intensive operations. Just as you did in math class, Illustrator uses a scratch pad to save work while performing normal functions. Sometimes, in really complex files, Illustrator may need a lot of space. You can specify a hard drive or volume that Illustrator should use as a scratch disk to perform these functions. By default, your startup disk is your scratch disk, but you can change to a disk with more free space if you’d like. You can also specify a second scratch disk should Illustrator ever run out of room on the first one. THE USER INTERFACE PANEL Illustrator contains a panel-based user interface that is consistent with other components of the Adobe Creative Suite 4 family. The User Interface panel in Preferences lets you configure how the user interface looks and how it works when you use it (Figure A.10).
  6. THE USER INTERFACE PANEL 549 Figure A.10 The User Interface panel in Preferences lets you control settings for how the new CS4 interface looks and works. Brightness. Some people work in a brightly lit studio, while others work in dark or dimly lit rooms. People who do certain types of work, such as video or prepress production, may also prefer to work in darker environments so that they can better focus on their work. In these dark environments, the panels in the interface can be bright enough to be a distraction. To allow these users to better focus on the art on their screens, the user interface has a Brightness slider. Sliding the triangle to the right will make the back- grounds in the panels brighter; sliding the triangle to the left will result in a dark gray background in the panels. Auto-Collapse Icon Panels. When a panel is collapsed, you can click its icon to open the panel as you need it. With the Auto-Collapse Icon Panels setting turned on, a panel will return to its collapsed, iconic state after you’ve clicked elsewhere on your screen. Turning the setting off means a panel will stay open and return to its collapsed, iconic state only if you click its icon again. Open Documents As Tabs. The user interface in Illustrator allows docu- ments to be displayed as individual windows or as tabs in a single overall window. This setting lets you enable or disable the tabs feature.
  7. 550 APPENDIX: APPLICATION PREFERENCES THE FILE H ANDLING & CLIPBOARD PANEL The File Handling & Clipboard panel includes settings for how Illustrator handles certain files as well as settings for how art is copied to the clipboard for pasting into other applications (Figure A.11). Figure A.11 The File Handling & Clipboard panel in Preferences allows you to determine how graphics are copied and pasted into other applications. Use Low Resolution Proxy for Linked EPS. When you place-link an EPS file into Illustrator, whether it is an Adobe Photoshop CS4 EPS file or any other generic EPS file, the preview that’s displayed on your screen can be either the low-resolution preview that’s embedded in the EPS file or a high-resolution version that Illustrator parses from the PostScript data in the actual EPS file. By default, Illustrator ships with this preference setting turned off, so a high-resolution file is used, resulting in a much better- looking preview on your screen. In addition, this high-resolution data is used when exporting your file in pixel-based formats (PSD, TFF, JPEG); however, screen redraw is slower, and the file size increases. On a separate note, when you’re using the Live Trace feature with place-linked EPS files, the resolution of the image that Live Trace can detect depends on this setting as well. When the option is selected, Live Trace sees the 72 ppi preview file and traces that. By turning this setting off, Live Trace can detect the full resolution of the file and use it to trace the image.
  8. THE APPEARANCE OF BLACK PANEL 551 Update Links. When you place-link a file into Illustrator, the Links panel maintains the link information about that file. Because the file is external, you can edit that file easily by using the Edit Original feature, found in either the Links panel or the Control panel. When the default Ask When Modified setting is used, if you edit a linked file outside Illustrator and return to the Illustrator document, you’ll get a dialog box telling you that the file was updated, with an option to update the link. Alternatively, you can choose to manually update links yourself through the Links panel, or you can set Illustrator to automatically update all links as they happen. Clipboard on Quit. Today’s modern operating systems use an efficient method to copy and paste data using the system’s clipboard, called promising. Rather than copy art in a variety of formats to the clipboard (which would take time), applications promise to deliver art when pasted. Then, when you paste the art, the operating system goes back to the application you copied from and gets the data. The problem is, if you’ve quit the program since you performed the copy function, the operating system can’t fulfill its promise. So when you quit an application, it copies whatever was promised to the clipboard (which explains why sometimes it takes a while for an application to actually quit). The Clipboard on Quit preference allows you to deter- mine which file formats are used to copy art to the clipboard when you quit Illustrator. By default, both the PDF and the Adobe Illustrator Clip Board (AICB) options are selected, which gives you the most options. Unless you have a specific reason, we suggest you leave both of these selected at all times. In general, the PDF option supports native transparency and is PDF 1.6, whereas the AICB is flattened data and is PostScript. THE A PPEAR ANCE OF BLACK PANEL In an effort to display graphics on your screen or proofs that closely match what you will see on a printed sheet, Illustrator includes a setting specifi- cally for how the color black is displayed or printed (Figure A.12). You can choose to have your blacks display accurately, in which case black will appear closer to a dark gray color (closer to what you might see on news- print), or you can choose to display rich blacks, in which case your blacks will be much darker. Note that these settings are not color management
  9. 552 APPENDIX: APPLICATION PREFERENCES settings and don’t affect your final separated output. These settings affect only your screen display or output to an RGB device. Figure A.12 The Appearance of Black panel in Preferences allows you to achieve more accurate color results on your screen.
