In this video, learn how to use a second view in order to have a better overview of your work.
- [Instructor] So far we looked at our digital canvas … through one single file window, … and the thing is that if we zoom close … and start to work on details in our illustration … we might lose the big picture, … the overview of our illustration, … because we only see this one little slice … of our digital canvas. … Now, we already learned that under Window, Navigator, … we can open up the Navigator pallet, … and the Navigator gives us an overview … of our complete digital canvas. … But this is a little bit limited … because we always have to look at the complete canvas, … even if portions of it are not really interesting to us. … What if in this specific example … I only want to look at the figure … while working on some details. … Now, there is a remedy for that. … I will close the Navigator window to make some space … because now I want to open up a second view … on our digital canvas. … For that I go to Window, Arrange, … and all the way down at the bottom … I find the New Window function. …
