This tutorial will teach you how make a double helix using Illustrator, it’s another great example of using the pathfinder.
Everything you always wanted to know about Symbols in Illustrator and were afraid to ask but you asked anyway…
So my friend Mike writes me:
O Captain Illustrator, I do beseech you to solve for me a symbol set conundrum:
I have a symbol set, and I would like to break the “set”, so that it is a bunch of individual symbol instances. What I have come up with, which doesn’t seem right, is to first break the link to the symbol, and then ungroup (“ungroup” is not available as long as we’re talking about a symbol set). Is there a way to do this?
Go ahead, make my day. (Night, actually.)
The answer is a resounding NO, but we might as well use this as an opportunity to learn about Symbols.
