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 (#17). If you have not yet completed this, then please go back and do so before continuing
