Learn about an undocumented feature that lets you automatically apply an object style to placed frames.
- [Teacher] This movie is a tip…about creating an object style…that functions as a default style…and can automatically apply to any frames that you place.…Now, if we look at the Object Styles panel,…we see that I have this style here called Fill.…And we have these icons which we can drag down.…If we read the tool tip,…"Indicates style applied to new graphic objects."…So that suggests…that if we drag that next to my Fill object style,…that that makes that object style the default.…
Well, it doesn't really.…It does,…if you use the rectangle tool.…I use the rectangle too.…It's in the Fill object style.…If I use my Frame tool, even though Fill is selected,…by the time I finish drawing that frame,…it's switched back to none.…It also doesn't apply to any frames…that I've created when you place images.…Wouldn't it be nice if it did?…So what I'm going to do here…is place some images.…
I'm going to place nine images…and I'm going to place them…using a feature called Gridify.…I'll click and drag.…As I'm dragging, I'll press my right arrow twice,…
