Im trying to make a rectangle that has diagonal lines as its fill.
I can use the Texture/ Line Diag -1, but how can I edit the appearance of this texture? All I seem to be able to do is change the colour. I want to increase the spacing between the lines and change their thickness. I know that Gradients and Patterns are more controllable but none of them have the effect im looking for.
I thought someone had asked recently about the difference between textures and patterns, and it was you. You were told that textures cannot be edited.
You aren't changing the color of the texture, by the way, you're changing the color of the object the texture is applied to.
Textures are bitmaps. You can't edit them, but you can create and add your own to the library. Here are the instructions for CS3:
You'll want to make sure your bitmap tiles.
If you have CS4, the menus, dialogs, and help pages may be different and you might have to search around.
Sorry if i repeated myself. I was asking a sort of similar question incase explaining what i was trying to achive meant that someone could recommend a better method.
Thanks for your reply. Ill have a read of that link.
