Hello:                                                                                                               OS: Windows 7 Home 64bit

 

I have made a copy of a circle of which I need to remove the Fill and Stroke.

 

I have clicked the thumbnails, on the Tools panel, of the Fill & Stroke to set to None but this didn't remove either in my copy.

 

I have checked under each and every Menu option and I have checked in the F&S panel itself to no avail.

 

Could you please explain how I go about removing the F&S of a copy?

 

Oh, also ... in Illustrator is a Copy the same as a Duplicate?

 

Thank you for your time

    Did you click on the circle to make it active? Since I don't know your experience level, I have to ask.

    Open the layer panel and the appearence panel and post screen grabs of them, plus grab the top tool bar, with the circle selected for all screen grabs.

    I am in New York. I still get on the forums even on holidays.

     

    Scaling proportionally, place cursor over corner anchor and hold down shift key then drag.

     

    If you also hold down the alt key you can scale from the center of the object instead of the opposite corner.

    I should correct that, place the cursor over any anchor and the shift key will scale proportionately using the opposite anchor.

    Holding shift+alt will scale from the center when placing the cursor over any anchor.

     

    Just want to make it clear that you don't have to use a corner anchor when scaling. Thats kind of why the shift key is required. (don't really know the true reason, but thats my guess...)

    You might want to take a look at this (see the video too)

    Removing means: setting fill and stroke to "None"
