    ok.. im using freehand...(i dont want to hear no guff about using illustrator)

    anyways im trying to make textures or pattern fills to put in certain shapes.

    but my fill options dont seem to work.. so if i want to have a fill effect it just comes out as letters rather then the fill i chose.

    any answers or anyone want to help me out?

  3. not really familiar w/ freehand, but is there a sort of "define pattern" option anywhere? that might be the trick. or get a copy of illustrator. (just kidding)
     
  4. First, get yourself a copy of that stupid goddamn tutorial where they teach you how to do that "Festa Di Pasta" noodle crap. Patterning should be there somewhere. After you're done reading it, go back to Freehand and give it a try. When you fail miserably, shoot yourself in the face with a large semiautomatic weapon because Illustrator is better. Good luck.

    do you want to work with vector or bitmap patterns? I think that with Flash 5 you can just select the colour box and then you can sample a bitmap that's on the scene and it'll show up as the fill colour.
    I'm not to sure about Freeheand.. I only ever use it for vector stuff.. even that it's a nuisance.

    hope that helps

    I hate trying to explain graphics over e-mail/message boards/internet. If I was looking over your shoulder I'd help you.

    P.S. Learn Illustrator you sissy

    It sounds like the problem may be that you are trying to apply bitmap fill effects in a vector image, when you view the vector file it will only show type to illustrate where the fill effect is. Fuck an illustrator, go get yourself coreldraw...this is the best program I have found for working in vectors.
