I'm trying to use an image that I have (picture) as a fill. I copied it to my work area, added to swatches, but when I fill the area of a new object, the image is tiled. Is there a way that I can fill the area without it being tiled?
Can you post an example of what you are trying to achieve.
My guess is that you need to look into either using symbols, or a clipping mask...but without knowing what you are trying to achieve...
Well, you use clipping paths for that, not pattern fills. You are simply taking the wrong approach. You do not "fill" objects, you tell the program which parts to hide/ not print. That's how it works. So place the image noramlly on the canvas, put your paths on top of it, select both items, right-click and chose Create Clipping Mask.
Thanks so much. I was just going about it the wrong way. Thanks again
