I am trying to position a swatch within a pattern/shape i have designed? I don't mean the scaling of it; i mean to actually move the whole
swatch within the shape/pattern.
Thanks in advance.
in the transform palette, check 'Transform Pattern Only' and then adjust the X/Y coordinates.
OR you can select the shape and double-click on the Selection tool.
In the dialog that opens, uncheck Transform Objects leaving Transform Patterns checked.
Now you can move just the Pattern the exact amount you want.
Thank you Jeff, exactly what i needed!
No problem DRACO04. Happy to help!
Or you can select the object with the pattern.
Hold down the tilde ~ key and move the pattern only, by dragging or by using the arrow keys.
this is an old response but it seems after the new updates this shortcut no longer works. anyone else figure out a solution?
Still works for me. Did you select the object with the Selection tool (V) and then use the ~ key?
