    Symbol Tool Options - translate please

    Cheryl Graham Level 2

      From the CS4 Help:

      Intensity Specifies the rate of change (higher values equal faster changes), or select Use Pressure Pen to use the input from a tablet or pen instead of the Intensity value.

      Symbol Set Density Specifies an attraction value for the symbol set (higher values result in more densely packed symbol instances). This setting applies to an entire symbol set. If a symbol set is selected, the density changes for all symbol instances in the set, not just newly created instances.

      Can someone put this into plainer English? I am trying all sorts of combinations, and I get the gist of what they do. But I am having trouble getting my mind around terms like "attraction value" and "rate of change" as they apply to these tools. Also how they affect one another.

      Thanks.
