Observe and use the Properties panel in the context of selections.
- [Voiceover] In this movie,…we're going to draw a couple of things here…and then examine the changes in the properties inspector…to see how much time it can save us.…I'm just going to activate my rectangle tool,…and I've just tapped M on my keyboard here,…and I'm just going to draw a couple of rectangles like so.…Same as I normally would, so I'm just…holding down alt here, or option to draw from…the center outwards just a couple of rectangles there.…And this one I think I'll give a bit of a corner radius.…
No change there at all.…I'm now going to tap V on my keyboard…to get my selection tool, and you'll see…that while I have one object here selected,…I can do things such as change the fill color quickly,…and I can change the stroke.…Again, by hover scrubbing here makes it really easy…for me to change that with lightning speed.…In fact, I can change the opacity as well,…and even access my effects within this region.…And in fact, if you look at that, that's maybe what?…An inch and a bit, inch and a quarter…or inch and a half there to do all of those things.…
