Discover the New Document dialog features.
- [Instructor] In this chapter, we're going to take a look…at some of the other features…that don't quite warrant their own chapter,…but are nonetheless important time-savers…and enhancements of Illustrator.…We're going to start off with the New Document dialog here…which you've seen in a couple of places…throughout the course,…but I want to dig in a little bit deeper at this point.…So I'm going to start off with a preset here from the top…of the New Document dialog, and I'll start off…with a 1920 by 1080 document here,…and you can see that I can choose my unit of measurement…from here directly.…
Of course I've got the fields to change the width…and the height.…I can now use basic arithmetic operators inside of here.…So, for example, if somebody said I needed something…to go on the first third of the screen, for example,…to 1080, then I could just change that value by,…let's do the 1920 here, divided by three,…and it would do that calculation for me,…similarly if I wanted to do that for the height as well.…
