Learn the basics of the Illustrator interface.
- [Narrator] This will be your introduction…to the Illustrator workspace and it changed quite a bit…at the end of 2017.…In the control strip or options bar across the top…has disappeared and been replaced…by this new streamlined context based properties panel…over on the right hand side.…So that we get the smoothest experience,…because we're going to be using a lot of other panels…throughout this particular chapter, and especially…if you've only seen earlier versions of Illustrator,…we're going to swap to the essentials classic workspace…for this orientation.…
To do that, if you come up to the top right hand corner…of the screen here where it says essentials, most likely,…it might say any one of these other things here…apart from Working 18 which is my own,…and choose essentials classic from there.…Then the interface will redraw like so.…The next thing you need to do to make sure…that we're all looking at more or less the same thing…is go back to that menu and then choose…reset essentials classic and that will just redraw it…
