MODULE 1 • Copying The Basic Jean Front, Creating The Back View

Step Description
1A Before we begin, note that complete Mac and Windows Commands, Keyboard Shortcuts & Mouse directions are written in the script, and mentioned only in the audio.

The video shows only Mac Commands, using a one-button mouse.

Here are the Keyboard Shortcut abbreviations and differences:

  • Mac: Command (Cmd) =  Windows: Control (Ctrl)
  • Mac: Option (Opt) = Windows: (Alt)
  • Shortcut directions are written as follows:
    • Cmd/Ctrl + Keyboard Letter
    • Opt/Alt + click

This means press & hold the Command key if you have a Mac, or the Control Key if you have Windows, then press the letter, or perform the action, etc….

1B A note on Mouse actions:

  • Two Button Mouse: Right Click to open the Context Menu/ Right Click Menu
  • One Button Mouse: Press & Hold the Control (Ctrl) Key while you click on the Art Board, to open the Context Menu/ Right Click Menu.

If you have a one button mouse for your Mac, you might want to configure it to act like a two button mouse:

  • Go to System Preferences.
  • Open up the Mouse options
  • On the “Point & Click” page, check the box to the left of “Secondary Click: Click on Right Side”.
  • Your Mouse will now work like a Two Button Mouse
2 In this lesson we will be working on the file, Basic Jean Flat Front, that we made in our last lesson. If you have not yet completed this, please go back and do so before continuing.
