Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with CSS Properties, part of Illustrator: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
Traditionally Adobe Illustrator has been used as a companion app in the print …production workflow. It's been great for logos and different …things that you're going to then place into an InDesign document and then export …out for commercial print. It's also been great for illustrations …and tracing objects and things like that. However now Adobe is trying to position …Illustrator as more of a web design tool. And I for one am very excited about that, …because I use Illustrator for my web designs all the time anyway. …And now that we have some really cool CSS features being built into Illustrator, it …makes it even that much better. So, let's bring up the new CSS properties …panel by going to Window, CSS Properties. And when I bring up this panel you're …going to notice there's not a whole lot going on in here.…
And number one I don't have anything selected on the artboard right now so, …there's nothing to be displayed in here. Even if I were to click on something in …the artboard though, you're going to notice here that it says no CSS code was generated. …
