Learn how to make alternate versions of artwork in a single document and Artboard.
- (Teacher) Here's an old but handy trick you can use…in Illustrator when you're working with In Designer…that saves you having several different versions of a file.…And it's even relevant today in the world of CC libraries…because you have to have different assets.…This is one file with the assets I need in it.…So what I've got here is three different versions…of a graphic, and if I turn their layers off for a second…and just restore the topmost one,…this is a full color version of the graphic,…maybe for a magazine or many other different intents.…
And then underneath that,…I've got a Grayscale version of the graphic,…which might be for newsprint or some other low color form,…and I've got a black only version as well,…just one ink, one solidity there, like so.…So what I'm going to do is swap out to In Design,…where I've got this glorious layout that I made…and took me hours, or more likely 20 seconds (laughs).…And what I'm going to do is place the graphic into it.…So I'm going to use Command + D, or Ctrl + D…
