Star Eyed

Posted on Thursday, June 8th, 2006 under Design | No comments

Illustrator StarWell blow my mind away! Apparently Adobe Illustrator does have a sweet little keyboard command for increasing or decreasing the inner radius of a star. Here is a quick review of all of the commands I use when drawing my stars:


  • Up-arrow / down-arrow : Use these to increase/decrease (respectively) the number of points on the star
  • Shift : Use this to keep the start right-aligned
  • Option : Use this to give your star "stunted" points
  • Control+Apple+Shift : Here's the money maker. Hold these down while dragging to increase and decrease the inner radius of the star. Sweet
