Adobe Illustrator: Moving, Copying & Arranging Objects – #6
In this lesson, I will teach you simple ways to move, copy and arrange objects in Adobe Illustrator. We will work with a flat illustration of a Ladies Tank Top. In the first two modules, I will show you basic moving, nudging and copying techniques, followed by module three, which will demonstrate how to arrange these copies, and give you time to practice what you have learned.

MODULE 1 • Moving Objects
|1||Before we begin, download the Illustrator file named Ladies Tank Top supplied with this video. Save it to your desktop and open it as you have learned to do in previous lessons.There should be 2 drawings on your workspace: an outline of the Tank Top’s overall silhouette, and a fashion illustration showing stitching, draping and color detail.
|2||Check your workspace to see if it is set up the way you need it to be for this project.
Once you are set up, we can begin to learn how to move objects, in this case, our Tank Top flats.
|3||The simplest way to move these will be to use the Click & Drag method.
First, select the selection tool from the tools panel, or by pressing the letter V on our keyboard.
